I would like to remember my Babcia - A Szydlowska who served in World War One in Poland. (she wouldn't talk much about what happened, she was in her late teens - but she managed to keep a medal, which we all treasure, that she received for capturing the enemy. She survived World War Two - having to work on German Farm and finally was able came to New Zealand with my Mum. She lived in New Zealand for 40 years and considered this her new home - she is definitely worthy of a poppy on ANZAC Day.

Moe mai ra e te rangatira e! Ko ngāti tūmatauenga whakakake, me te rangatira, te hunga whawhai mō nga whānau, te kingi , me te whenua. Kei wareware tatou!
