Summary Be inspired by the courage of this hard-working Southland farmer who led the First Commando Fiji Guerrillas in World War II. My parents were an exceptional couple. Their characters and influence in the local community, the farming world and in a much wider sphere were significant. My father's contribution to the war effort in the Solomon Islands, and the well-deserved Silver Star awarded to him by the Americans is a unique story that you will not find in many of the war histories. My mother also made a huge impact in her community and was awarded a QSM for her work.
