My father told me about a visit during WW2 of two newzealand Maoris Pilotsto the UK Their names were were John and Frank Douglas.
I understand they may be related to me . Via My Great Grandfathers brother who was a lawyer who migrated to NZ in the nineteenth century. Legend has it that he helped the maoris to win a legal case with regard to land rites. If anyone knows anything I would be most interested to hear from you.
