    Memories of our class of boys(12th) going to Waitangi in 1948 onboard Aribus or Arbutus (sweepers) and being the guard after only 3 months in pussers

    I remember that guard also Peter, plus the cow dung we had to dodge on the way up to the parade ground . Great to hear that you are still alive & kicking Regards Tex Spence
