Henry and Rosetta's eldest son Henry left NZ about the age of 18 and at that stage had served his time as an engineer with Seager Bros. Auckland.

In all Henry served 29 years in the Navy, including 5 years during WW2. He retired as a Lt.Commander on HMAS Anzac after serving as Chief Engineer on RAN flagship HMAS Melbourne. Then he joined the US merchant Navy for a period. Joy Dustin (nee Jones) writes: "The hat and epaulettes of his uniform were housed in black tin "trunks" shaped like the article. These were lined with purple velvet and inside the hat was black fur stiffly blocked with a twist of cloth of gold from the front to the back. The Epaulettes were packed similarly in one little trunk lined with purple velvet with a divider. Henry said he had to pay for them."[All in One Family Tree Aug 2009.FTW]
