I am looking to find information on my grandfather and the time he spent in the 28th Maori Batallion, where he served, what rank he was,what unit, what medals he recieved and how i can get a hold of his medals due to his original ones being sold, I am a returned serviceman myself and want to find out what i can do about this matter. Generally any information regarding him in the war. My grandfathers name is Tena Karena, from Kawhia ( Ngati Te Wehi, Ngati Mahanga )
