I am looking for any imformation concerning my grandfather,I know he was in the Army I found that online.I also know he was some kind of writer.But i would like to know what kind of person he was as i had only met him once or twice when i was very young.My mother was not raised by him [not his fault] so she does not know much.

Thanks in advance for any replies

Greg

Thanks for that I do know some of the Wikiriwhi whanau in Rotorua but living in Australia makes it a little harder to be able to communicate with them.
