I have a long family military history, dating back to before the Crimea War. My Great Great Grandfather served in the 1st Scottish Regt. which he joined in 1843. He fought in the Crimea War, was wounded (gun shot wound to the head), he was picked up as a hopeless case from the dead and dying pile and subsequently (after surgery in the field hospital) recovered. He also fought in the South African troubles, China War, Turkish War. He received wounds in both the Takau and Pekin engagements. He emigrated to Melbourne and joined Pitts 400, and sailed for New Zealand, and went on to fight in the Maori NZ Land Wars. He was wounded (shot through the thigh) during the Orakau fight, which left him permanently with a limp. He was awarded eight medals, and performed many deeds which might have gained him the V.C. He settled in Opotiki and was known as the 'Grand old man of Opotiki'. `He received wounds in EACH OF THE ENGAGEMENTS he fought in and went to his grave carrying many battle scars from his years in the military - WHAT A MAN!!

Three of his sons fought in the Boer War retracing his footsteps, one of which was my great grandfather. Family history also covers WW1 , WW2 and family members served in the Air Force (Grandfather), Air Force (father) and Navy (myself).

This family history has driven my passion for military memorabilia and military history.
