The photo here is of my Dad Lt Hone (John) Te Kauru Green who was killed in Gazala Libya 15th December 1941.
I am his namesake Hone Te Kauru O Te Rangi Green born September 1940 youngest of five of his and our mum Maria Materoa Green's children. Matehaere (Monty deceased), Joseph (Koro deceased), Jossie, Hoana and me.
I grew up wearing his medals at every Anzac Service each year of my young life, and only recently was fortunate through the efforts of a caring whanaugna Wiremu Milner whos parents Hora and Koro Milner meant a lot to me sent me photos of his grave at Knightsbridge War Cemetery, Acroma, in Libya.
I am grateful to and acknowledge the people responsible for this website that has given me a chance to put photos and some information here about him for our families and others to see and read about.
