My Background

I was born in Palmerston North in the North Island of New Zealand during the time of the second world war. At the end of the war my family moved to Hawera in South Taranaki, where I attended the Hawera and Ramanui Primary Schools. I did my secondary education at the Hawera Technical High School, as it was known then. In 1959 I moved to Wellington and started work with the NZ Post Office as a Radio Technician. At present I am retired and live in the city of Hamilton, which has a population of 160,000.
