    The image above is cropped from a photograph taken at NeeSoon Garrison in January 1971. The 14 individuals in the photograph were all Nelson College Old Boys, including CO Lt Col Robin Guy Williams MBE and RSM WO1 Donald Frank Williams.

    There were several non-Infantry persons in 1RNZIR at that time. The RSO was Capt George Mathews, RNZ Sigs. There were no ‘uniform’ rules, and we usually wore on our corps stable belts.

  • Hi Graham. It is over 10 years since you posted this and I've only just seen it.

    I served with your father at 1 Base Workshop in Trentham Camp period 1972 -74. He was a member of the Royal NZ Electrical & Mechanical Engineers (RNZEME) I grew up in Patea, South Taranaki as did Rodney, and we were of similar age. I remember at least two Back families who farmed in the Patea area. My brother Denis lives in the area and has occasional contact with members of the Back family, mainly Michael Back. If you could tell me who Rodney's father was then Denis could likely contact any descendants still in the area.

    Best wishes
