    Des is my father my mother is Mabel Ratima. I am the only lucky child. I served 24yrs after dad left the service in 1985 after 20 years. I retired as a WO2 in RNZE.

    As a result of being seriously injured in close contact with the En on 7 Feb 1968, dad was medevaced to NZ in May 1968. Some 53 years later in 2021 dad was diagnosed with vascular dementia as a direct result of the serious head injury sustained in Vietnam. Mum and dad live separately within Ranfurly Resthome Villas and Dementia Unit respectively, in Fielding NZ.
