Waitomo & Te Kuiti

6 RAR/NZ (ANZAC) BATTALION  •  SOUTH VIETNAM 1969 – 1970

In 1989 the family of Herehere (Jerry) Barrett invited members of V4 and soldiers who had served
with him to a hui at Tokikapu Marae at Waitomo to commemorate the 20th anniversary of his death.

There was a large turnout of our guys and also included engineers that he had worked with.
There were several plaques unveiled and a memorial service at Jerry’s grave,
where Paddy Smith addressed those gathered.

Paddy and Ray Davidson were wounded in the same contact where Jerry was Killed in Action
​and Peter Rauhihi Died of Wounds.

Among those attending was Pam Miley-Terry who tended the wounded in Vung Tau Hospital. 

We were hosted overnight with great hospitality and next day were given a guided tour of the Waitomo Caves.

This event bought closure for the Barrett whanau and was greatly appreciated by all those who attended.

Kia ora te whanau.
