Once again - another great addition to our pages, That is good work Greg - thanks mate.

I have taken the liberty of changing the font size to 12 pixels as per a standard that I am changing all the pages to now. (Some of the pages still need updating by me - however a good time for me to tell you the font size)

Also an old editor friend of mine told me that you never abbreviate titles in a printed document presented to the public (he considered it not professional) so I have made sure that ranks such as Capt., lieut. et al are written out in full - Captain, Lieutenant.

Lastly, I couldn't help myself and I have removed the seam between the two photographs joined to show the WMR on parade at the bottom of the page.

Thanks for the changes, especially the seam in the photos. Sorry it is a little fuzzy but had to make it out of 2 photos from 2 sources.

The wording is directly from the book The official war history of the WMR Regiment by Major A.H. Wilkie. Will make this acknowledgement in the future pages.

Yes- that would be right - a military man, they talk in shorthand those blokes:
"The 2IC at the EME HQ with 3RNZIR SIGS talking to SUNRAY".
