name correction

John (aka Tony) Tikao-Barrett's middle name was Piuraki (not Piurako). I have contacted the people at the Cenotaph database with the correction but they haven't updated it yet. His name shows up correctly on the Archives NZ Archway database and I also have his personnel records which have his name as Piuraki (he was named after one of our ancestors).
