In this photo is my Dad (back row first on the left) with his life long best friend (my "uncle" Ivan, the only boy wearing a tie) !! Ivan went on to become both a qualified pharmacist and a doctor spending his entire career in the small rural town of Palmerston as their GP. My dad was a Pilot in WW2, studied electrical engineering and worked at the NZ Post and Telegraph his whole career. In his "retirement" spending ten years working for the UNDP around the Pacific designing and installing telecommunications systems.
