I am to visit NZ, OCT 17 to the 28th.
I have researched a heroic event in the Boer war full of Anzac spirited intent. I can name all 22 men in a patrol on that day, and have photos of each man. Included is a New Zealander within a Tasmanian unit,
The AWM still lists him as a native Tasmanian. My research shows he was born, grew up, wed, lived, worked and passed away in NZ. This man won a gallantry medal in this specific event, but NZ apparently knows little or nothing of the man.
I am trying to bring this story back to the attention of NZ. I have a lot of detail, considerably more than the history books. It is a terrific and entertaining story.
My visit will touch on Wellington, but predominantly be Southland orientated, based in Dunedin. In addition this man was a NZ Artillery officer for a short time. Would anyone within your group be interested to see the whole story?
Just a thought. Kind regards
