bullet  General Notes:

At the outbreak of war he and his brother Ernie enlisted in the N.Z. Army and served overseas, Bert leaving N.Z. with the 2nd Echelon and going first to England, then to Egypt. He was in the 22nd Battalion and fought in Greece, and when the Troops were ordered to retreat was in the Rearguard. The Main Body including the 22nd Battalion had already embarked for Crete when the rearguard reached the embarkation port, and this group returned To Egypt. After being parted from his Unit (the majority of which were either killed or taken prisoner of war in Crete), Bert was posted to the same unit as his brother Ernie. They served in the 8th Army in the "Desert Rats" under General Montgomery and fought in North Afrlca until victory was achieved in Tripoli. He was then due for a furlough and return to N.Z. in 1943. He did not pass the medical to return to active service because of sand in the lungs.

Bert lived with his father and sister Kath in Wellington until his marriage in 1947. Kath's first husband, Viv. Heron, was killed on active service WW2. At the date of these notes (1997), Bert, Ernie & Kath have passed away, and May and Norman both left the addresses previously known, so contact with the remaining two members of the family. Edward and Elsie were divorced the '1960s, Edward did not marry again but Elsie married first Frank Martin who died, and secondly Harold Ennis. Harold died in a fire which burnt their home in Otaki.
