garet, and on black-and-white photos taken by him and fellow soldiers. It also includes detailed maps of the movements and battles of 25 Battalion. It details his personal experiences, and those of the men of 25 Battalion serving with the New Zealand Division in World War II. The Battalion was drawn from the lower half of the North Island and had one of the highest casualty rates of any. Continued on page 2.

Karori man’s daughter records his wartime service Continued from page 1. At 23, Edward entered the army as a private and quickly rose to become a Lieutenant Colonel, the commanding officer of the Wellington-based Battalion during the tough Italian campaign. For his wartime service, Eddie was awarded the Distinguished Service Order, Military Cross, and American Legion of Merit, and in 1984 was made a Knight Commander of the British Empire. Elizabeth, who grew up in Karori, says her father’s training as a priest meant he was a disciplined and thoughtful soldier. “He was also a natural leader who showed real warmth and care for his men.” Eddie’s first battle was at El Alamein in Egypt in 1942 where the New Zealand Division suffered huge losses, a great shock for him. The battalion was, however, re-

to the end of the war in Italy. War historian Christopher Pugsley says: “The book is both a love story and a war story. Its message is universal.”

Help with huge cost of tiny dog’s treatment By Glenise Dreaver

Last week, on page 5, the Independent Herald ran the story of Debbie Helson and her Shi Tzu James, who survived a vicious attack by Boss, a neighbour’s pit bull. Both James and Debbie were injured when the dog battered its way into their hallway. James had to be taken to Massey University’s veterinary hospital in Palmerston North for specialist treatment. Friend Jodie Matthews says Debbie so far faces about $3700 for the surgery, plus travel to and

International Christmas International Christmas Fair Fair at Homewood at Homewood

from Massey and twice weekly visits to the vet. The second round of surgery will cost about $4000 she says. “All up it’s going to be about $10,000.” An offer of $200 from the dog’s owner has yet to materialise and Debbie, still limping and moving very gingerly, is unable to work. She has a stand down of a week before ACC payments kick in. To help with the veterinary costs, Jodie has put up a givealittle page. It can be found at https:// givealittle.co.nz with the heading “Please help my dog James save his leg”.

WWII veterans are forgotten people By Glenise Dreaver

Carey Clements is a man on a mission. He wants to honour those servicemen and women from Karori, Makara and Northland who served in the three New Zealand armed services during World War II. Several years ago, the Karori RSA’s World War I honours board was updated and corrected by the late Michael Foster, Mayor Andy Foster’s father. He also had the board restored. But Carey started thinking. War was declared on September 3 1939 but, he said, this year’s eightieth milestone went virtually unheralded. “Why aren’t we recognising WWII veterans? Some are still around and we should be honouring them.” Carey is a former journalist and army territorial reservist of 18 years, as well as the archivist at Wellington High School and he felt something needed done. New Zealand Army records alone show 310 names from

Karori, Makara and Northland suburbs, then the catchment area of the Karori RSA. “That’s too many for an Honours board,” says Carey, so the decision has been made to have a memory book. “That can be updated over time.” He also plans short “potted” biographies and if possible photographs of each service person. Carey has also spent many hours creating a colour-coded spreadsheet recording New Zealand Army personnel from the three suburbs, with the names of those who died underlined for ready identification. Taking local photos of both Royal New Zealand Navy and Air Force service graves, Carey soon realised that some were not local and others would be buried elsewhere. And those who served in the navy and air force pose other problems. Early in the war, the two services were branches of the British services, so those records are held overseas. “I don’t know if we can ever track everyone,” says Carey. But

Good news for city Newly-released figures, for the year to the end of September, show that tourist numbers in Wellington are increasing, and spending nearly $2 billion a year here. Mayor Andy Foster also says GDP growth is above the national average, and the unemployment rate has dropped from 4.3 percent to 3.5 percent. And councillor Diane Calvert, who holds the Economic Development Portfolio, says that city merchants recorded an electronic card retail spend of $3.22 billion in the year to September 2019, up by 3.7 percent. This was driven largely by more people eating out and an increase in spending in the automotive category, like fuel, repairs and maintenance.

he’s giving it a darned good try. He is asking anyone who has information to contact him through

either his email of cnathanclements@hotmail.com or on his cell phone: 021 073 4133.

War casts a long shadow By Glenise Dreaver

Pat Tie is, at the age of 94, a stalwart, a committee member and a Life Member of the Karori RSA. As Pat Elgar, she attended Karori Normal School and as Corporal Elgar, she served with the Women’s Auxiliary Air Force (WAAF) from July 1 1943, until 1948. Then she married the boss, then Flight Lieutenant Stuart Tie.

That meant leaving the service. In those days, as a lesser rank, she wasn’t able to join him in the mess for meals and functions. Pat thinks back to the war days, especially hearing of friends who became Prisoners of War in Germany, or who were interned in the Pacific. “That’s more where the airforce was,” she says. “Those men were pretty shattered for quite a while. They just didn’t talk about it though.”

And war cast its long shadow over her own life. There were several post-war postings in New Zealand, with Stuart becoming a Squadron Leader, before the couple and their four children aged from one to seven years, were posted to Singapore. This was during the Malayan Insurgency and Pat’s husband was piloting Bristol Freighters dropping supplies to the Ghurkas battling communist infiltration.

Stuart was transferred to Changi, the RAF’s operational and training base. But tragedy struck after he had been there for only a few months, and just two weeks after Pat and the four children joined him there. In December 1956, he was killed when his plane crashed in the jungle. Pat and her four children returned to Karori where her parents still lived and she has lived there ever since.

Last year’s late-night safe zone, ‘Take 10’, is back in Wellington’s entertainment district. WCC has funded a custom-built mobile unit with a medic and a volunteer area with a toilet and storage space. Outside it has lighting, heaters, music, a tarpaulin cover made for Wellington weather, two draft water taps to supply 500 litres of filtered water, and will deliver key messages from an LED screen. The safe and alcohol free environment has trained staff, able to help vulnerable people get home, provide water and charging stations, with wrap around services for support and wellbeing if needed. It is also supported by Police, the Health Promotion Agency, and Hospitality NZ.

Nestival at Zoo On November 30 and December 1, between 9.30 and 5pm, Wellington Zoo is holding a Nestival to celebrate 10 years of The Nest Te Kōhanga, their animal hospital and centre for native wildlife. Children are being invited to take up the challenge and learn how to be a junior vet, to join a bubble party and enjoy the stilt walkers, face painting and junk monsters. There will also be specially-themed animal talks. Bring the family along to enjoy the day and support their work.

inbrief news Community carols A heads up to get you into the Christmas spirit: Community Christmas Carols will be held in the Onslow Community Church Hall at 4 Ngatoto Street, Ngaio at 7pm on December 1.

Wellington’s best parade here on December 7 The Johnsonville Christmas Parade committee reports that entries have now closed for the parade on Saturday December 7 with over 50 groups and floats confirmed. Spokesperson Marisa King says they are including old favourites like Princess Ariel and her fellow mermaids, the Delorean Time Machine from ‘Back to the Future’, the Wellington Circus Group, Paw Patrol characters, bands and of course Santa. “We also have some new surprises planned, including a special float for Roald Dahl fans and some top cops from a popular 70s TV show,” she says. The parade will start at 11am from Dr Taylor Terrace and will wind its way down Broderick Road, Johnsonville Road, Moorefield Road and Frankmoore Avenue before returning to Dr Taylor Terrace. It will take about an hour.

Following the parade, all the family favourite characters will be available for photos at a Meet and Greet session at Johnsonville Memorial Park beside the community centre. The parade route will be blocked off from 10.30am. “Get there early and leave the car at home if you can,” is Marisa’s advice. This is the largest communityrun Christmas Parade in Wellington and it’s the nineteenth time it has been held. A voluntary committee made up of community members and Lions Club members have been hard at work planning the big day for months. They’ll be assisted by a large crew of volunteers on the day. The organising committee is led by Johnsonville Lions Club member Richard Maddren. He has been involved with the parade since the early days when

the parade was run by the North Wellington Festival Committee, and has become more involved since the Lions took over organising the parade nearly a decade ago. “Three years ago we invited

members of the community to join us, and those that did have brought new and innovative ideas to the parade every year,” he says. “I measure our success in the joy on the faces of the children as the parade passes.”

The new chairperson of the Karori Residents’ Association (KRA) local real estate agent Andrea Skews, says pollution levels in the Karori stream are a major issue. “E coli levels are eight times over the Ministry for the Environment guidelines for recreational water,” she says. The KRA is holding meetings with Wellington Water and the Greater Wellington Regional Council. “We need public signage erected immediately for the safety of our residents.” She says stormwater overflow plays a major role in that problem. “We need more education about

how to reduce it. Things like washing cars on grass verges instead of letting wastewater flow down gutters into local drains.” The city’s aging infrastructure, with water pipes up to 100 years

old, are another contributing factor And as the Karori Campus is transformed into a Ryman Healthcare facility for the elderly, she is reassuring about local concerns about added pressure on an already over-loaded infrastructure. KRA have talked with Ryman. “They understand their responsibilities and the need to comply with council regulations.” Another matter for the KRA to focus on is the vexed issue of transport. “The buses.” The reorganisation of Wellington bus routes has, since July, seen Karori commuters hit hard by unreliability and lack of peak hour capacity. And the $1m revamp of the

town centre, following extensive local consultation and a survey, has been delayed, says Andrea. “Getting contractors appears to be a problem.” “Then there’s Ben Burn Park.” The Campbell Street reserve has been left “neglected” and Andrea says KRA are working with council on improvements, “addressing more appropriate planting and condition of the park along with suggestions for the future”. Her aim is to network, speak to all local clubs, organisations, schools, groups and key stakeholders “We have all been doing our own thing, but if we work together, united we have a stronger impact on achieving our goals.”

In the name of friendship Members of the Friendship Club of Johnsonville recently enjoyed High Tea with the usual scones, jam and cream, at Aston Norwood Gardens at Kaitoke. The club has its annual bus trip in November and after the garden walk and their

High Tea, went on to a threecourse lunch at Rimutaka Prison, where they also heard a short talk from a Prison Officer about the institution’s programmes for inmates. The bus was sponsored by Pub Charity with additional support by Mr William Yip.

This was the end of activities for 2019 but members will meet again at 9.45am on the third Thursday in February at the Johnsonville Uniting Church. “Visitors are always welcome,” says president Ross Fletcher.

at Thursday’s inauguration, role modelling the “dive right into it” approach. Deputy Mayor Sarah Free says Makara/Ohariu area is the largest ward in the Wellington area and it is critical to know the views of people who live there.

We all need to take medicines at some time during our lives - for some it is everyday, others only sometimes for a cold or headache. Self Care pharmacists can provide you with the fact card Safe Use of Medicines, and help you with any questions you have about any medicines you are taking. Whether you buy medicines or get them on prescription, Self Care pharmacists advise that they have some good suggestions for taking medicines properly, and for getting the best results from their use. Know what your medicines are for. Even if your doctor has explained, when you collect your medicines discuss with your pharmacist what each medicine is for. Your pharmacist can give you information on the expected effects of each medicine and how to take or use them correctly, and whether they will interact with other medicines you have been prescribed or medicines that you have purchased. Before taking any medicine, read the label carefully to confirm you are taking the correct medicine, the correct dose, at the correct time. This is especially important if you take many medicines at different times of the day. Labels have other important information such as when to take the medicines in relation to

food (with food or on an empty stomach), whether the medicine must be swallowed whole, whether it has to be used-up by a certain date. Pharmacists can also advise you if you miss a dose and when to take the next one. Sometimes medication may be large and difficult to swallow. Not all tablets and capsules can be halved or crushed and your pharmacist can help you with this. Talk to your pharmacist if you develop any unusual symptoms after you start taking a medicine. It is best to get this checked out as it may be an allergic reaction or an unwanted side effect of the medicine. Always measure liquid medicines accurately, using proper measures, to make sure you get the correct dose. A range of reusable measuring devices are available from pharmacies and your pharmacist can advise you on the one most suitable for you and your family. Drink a large glass of water as you swallow tablets or capsules. This will stop the medicine becoming stuck in your throat and help it get down to your stomach quickly to start working as soon as possible. It helps to lean forward as you swallow. Only take medicines that have been prescribed for you, and those recommended for you by your pharmacist. Do not use other people’s medicines because

they may not be suitable for your health condition. Other people's medicines may interact with other medicines you are taking. Store medicines correctly and dispose of them safely. Safe means out of reach of children - preferably in a locked cupboard. This is really vital when children come to your home only occasionally. Store medicines in a dry place, away from direct light or heat, so they don't degrade. However, some medicines need to be kept in the fridge. Don't keep medicines that are no longer needed. Despite the wastage, there are safety concerns in keeping old medicines "just in case". Don't throw them out in general rubbish, instead, talk to your pharmacist about safe disposal. Medicines returned to your pharmacist cannot be reused, and charges cannot be refunded. Discuss with your pharmacist if your medicines look different from what you are expecting. It is best to be reassured that everything is as it should be. If you are having trouble managing your medicines, your pharmacist may be able to help with their packaging especially for your own individual medication needs. Talk to your Self Care pharmacist about your medicine, to get the best outcome for your health.

Lisa Witehira, Johnsonville “I kind of like them. The younger ones are a lot better, bringing in a new vibe.”

Marguerte McDermott, Churton Park “I think they might be mildly irrelevant at this stage”

Christmas at Churton Park By Brian Sheppard

The children of Churton Park always look forward to their Community Association’s Christmas Party. This year’s event, held at Amesbury School, was as popular as ever. Families came through all afternoon so that their children

could burn off some energy in a bouncy castle, try some Christmas crafts and have their faces painted. They were also entertained by music from the Swing Club ukulele group and by the antics of Tricky the Clown. Parents wanting a bit of quiet time had complementary

afternoon tea, provided by the Churton Park Anglican Church. Hardier souls braved the wind to try their aim on a coconut shy, to play bumper ball or just to join the queue for a sausage sizzle. The star of the show, of course, was Santa who arrived in a shiny red fire engine.

Parents brought their children to his grotto to meet him and have their photos taken. Everything at the party was free but people were asked to bring a can of food for the food bank. Their gift also gave them entry to a raffle, which was drawn at the end of the afternoon.

Aluplast is one of the leading developers of uPVC window and door systems around the world, and the brand is recognised internationally for its innovations. They are based in over 80 countries and have 1400 business partners. We are supported from the other side of the world by the Head Office in Karlsruhe, Germany. For 35 years they have been developing superior, high quality uPVC extrusions, and uPVC window and door products. Our German Engineered uPVC profiles are treated for the New Zealand UV environment and are sure to last over 50

years, exceeding lifespan and performance of aluminium and timber. Our uPVC windows and doors will easily last 40 years or more in New Zealand. uPVC frames and uPVC windows do not need painting or special maintenance. uPVC is resistant to dirt and environmental conditions and cannot be deformed by moisture or temperature changes, like timber and aluminium joinery. Additionally the uPVC itself will never rot, rust or corrode. uPVC windows and doors can be easily cleaned with soapy water. Some periodic maintenance of hinges and moving parts is recommended.

History at your fingertips Archives Online is part of a wider programme to make Wellington City Council’s archives more accessible and to offer our services online. You’ll be able to search our holdings, from anywhere with an internet connection, anytime. Many of our digitised records are available for download (check the licence to see what kind of use is permitted). You’ll also soon be able to ask us to digitise a record for you, for a fee, through the service. Wellington City Archives has over 800,000 items in its collections. The earliest records date back to 1840 and

the most recent cover the present day. Information about all 800,000 records (metadata) is being progressively added to Archives Online, along with a digital copy of a record, where one is available. So far, about 15% of the holdings are digitised and we’ll get them online over the next few months. We’ll keep adding material, so check back if what you’re looking for isn’t here yet. If you can’t find what you’re looking for online, the original records can still be viewed at City Archives’ Wellington Office, by arrangement.

Looking back... Dental memories still strong after 70 years Most anniversaries and milestones in one’s life are almost never forgotten. At 88, Khandallah’s Margarita Doyle can well recall September 02, 1949 – because on that date seven decades ago, she and around 30 others began their two years at the National Dental Training School in Wellington’s Willis Street. The eighteen year old Margarita Smeaton from South Canterbury had aspired to be a teacher until a presentation on dental nursing during 1948 at Timaru’s Sacred Heart College had changed her mind. “It was the beginning of a whole new life for most of us and we made life-long friendships which led to wonderful reunions in Wellington down through the years” says Margarita who is philosophical about the fact that with just a handful of the “49ers’ left, age means they are past travelling to anymore gatherings. “That;s life” I guess but the memories remain strong of their two year course both at the then near new Willis Street facility and at the Dental Annex in Tinakori Road (later Premier House). A few years ago, MP Peter Dunne arranged for one of their reunion dinners to be held at Premier House. “We all seemed to get on and most of us thrived on the routine and the rules” says a smiling Margarita recalling having to leave the movies before a film ended in order to comply with the curfew imposed at the hostels at numbers 30 and 32 Hobson Street in Thorndon. “Of course, we had the foot-operated drills until the electric appliances were launched to great acclamation in the mid-1950s. Fillings haven’t changed much, really, if I think about it” she says “Amalgam is much the same really, and of course we could make it white for the front teeth!”


Senior Sergeant Quentin Ward says it could have been much worse. When going out on the water, people need to be aware of the wind direction to make sure they’re not going to be blown away from shore. “If you are goings out uon p the p owater, r t i make ng sure to wear a life jacket and tell someone where you’re going. It’s also a great idea to take a waterproof cell phone or a phone in a sealed plastic bag,” he says.

SPORTS TALK With Jacob Page

The burning summer questions The summer of cricket is alive and well after the first test against England. Here are some of my major questions for the season ahead. Can Ross Taylor maintain his form? Taylor is one of our best batsmen ever. On numbers alone he is considered in the top three ever for our country with Martin Crowe and Kane Williamson but can he maintain it as Father Time comes knocking? Taylor will turn 36 in early 2020 and has been playing international

cricket since 2007. In 2018, he had a procedure to rectify surfer’s eye, which affects the surface of the eye and is common in people who spend time outdoors. It gave Rosco a second wind in his career but does he have the passion to go on? The 94-test veteran clearly wants to hit three figures this season but after two World Cup finals and being part of one of New Zealand’s most golden cricketing eras over the past decade, it will be interesting to see if he has enough juice in the tank to produce meaningful

innings. Will there be depth? For me, the Black Caps have thrown a lot of players up against a wall to see if they will stick in the short-forms of the game but the test team is settled but lacking depth. Lockie Ferguson is pressing for Tim Southee’s spot, for his part, the vice captain was effective in the first test but was only bowling at 127kph for most of the match. There is little depth in the batting. No one appears to be pushing struggling opener Jeet Raval for his spot.

Raval has proven he is mentally weak at times in the test arena. He does the hard work against the new ball but often throws his wicket away with the platform laid. What happens at The Boxing Day test? Boxing Day at the Melbourne Cricket Ground is a mighty stage and the Aussies are rarely embarrassed on it. I hope (yes, I’ve resorted to hope) the Black Caps show they are no longer the little engine that could and challenge Steve Smith’s men and stand up to the pressure?

Can domestic cricket generate any interest? I’ll watch my Canterbury team but not many others do. Even the domestic twenty20 games draw minimal interest and that has to change. New stars or regression? We all know this golden bubble must burst sooner or later but who will be the big breakout star of the summer? Ferguson has his chance but there’s the possibility Tim Seifert as a dashing opening wicket-keeper batsman could make a claim too.

Marathon success by one of the sports challenged By Glenise Dreaver

On August 29, the lead story in the Independent Herald was about the huge challenge facing Lachlan McKenzie of Ngaio. The former Ngaio Primary schoolboy, now a senior communications and marketing adviser at Vic University, once avoided sport “at all costs”. Now he is thirty eight and has just completed his first marathon. He chose the iconic Queenstown race as his starter. It was held on November 16, and he wanted to raise money and awareness for women living with advanced breast cancer. Lachlan’s awareness of that came about because his mother Julie Bunnell of Palmerston North, formerly of Ngaio, is on the drug Ibrance, buying time after her 2012 diagnosis of a stage 4 incurable breast cancer.

Julie was down in Queenstown to cheer Lachlan along the course, which he completed in 4:34:15. “She saw me over the finish line,” he says. “It was quite emotional as it’s been such an undertaking.” “To have Mum, my partner Nicholas, and other support crew share the moment was rather overwhelming,“ Lachlan adds. As well as completing, he exceeded his aim of raising $4200, $100 for every kilometre. The total now stands at over $5300. His Give a Little page is found at https://givealittle.co.nz/fundraiser/lachlans-marathon-for-advanced-breast-cancer) and it’s open until December 1. Donations go, he says, to Breast Cancer Aotearoa Coalition, an entirely voluntary organisation, separate from the Breast Cancer Foundation. “They are ring-

fenced for New Zealanders living with advanced breast cancer.” Julie says Ibrance costs $6000 per month and the full cost for the first 11 cycles falls on the patient, the drug company then funding consequent cycles.

“I used my retirement savings to fund the $66,000,” says Julie, who has been taking Ibrance for nearly two years. However, she says, many women are simply unable to afford the drug.
