WEDNESDAY 30TH MARCH 2022
The Irirangi Story has continued to take its toll on my time. But it is a story that has to be put to bed. There are not to many of us left and among them I am the only one with the right resources. It will now be left alone for a few months, that is unless there is something drastic that pops up.
Today a new page was posted. The honours and awards from the Sinking of the Graf Spey HMNZS Achilles and others. it has a relationship with the Irirangi story in that TEL WO WL Brewer DSM came from that ship to the position of Executive Officer. He then became Commanding Officer and in all served the station for six years.
From tomorrow I have no idea what I am going do do next. There is a list but I need something with a bit of entertainment value.
MONDAY 14 MARCH
Bit wiped out after yesterdays marathon. However there is an update to the graphics programme I have to get kmy head around
Tok the opportunity to colourise a couple of oldies, the camp after the ruapehu explosion, the picture of NR2 and Ruapehu and the black and white of the test hut Eggie built. the latter is now sporting a view and some updated construction methods, In this day and age it looks quite rentable.
It has been 100% focus on the last edition of the HMNZS IRIRANGI story for the past 14 days. Serious history but I am the only one who can do this.
Couple of days working on Maroro now and then back to the mine face.
