He was a lieutenant of one of the most formidable battalions in NZ History. Honestly reading some of these old war-time stories, you can see why people glorify war. I mean it's bad for the most part but it's still very awe inspiring

I'm betting the enemy was paying more attention to the tommy gun than the rocks.

But he had a gun
