A photo from The
Evening Post, 21 October 1944, of Private Te Runa.
What a relief it must have been for whanau to see his smiling face.
It has the following caption underneath:
Teruna, a Maori soldier who was a prisoner of war in Germany gets a cup of
tea from the High Commissioner, Mr Jordan. Private Teruna, who comes from
Tokomaru Bay, is one of a party of New Zealand soldiers and airmen recently
repatriated from Germany.
