New Zealand Completed Requests / Any chance of a photo at Waikumete Cemetery

Is anyone able to take a photo in the Service Persons Ash Burial Area K. It is for Frederick Stewart Stevenson and is in Row 3A Plot226.

Hopefully someone will be visiting sometime.

Many thanks

Thanks for the assistance and Lucy I will request a photo on the site you mentioned.


Hope the experts can help.
I have been looking for details of my grandparent's burials in Rotorua cemetery and when searching on the cemetery database it comes up with all their details and location in the cemetery but it says no image available. Does this mean there is no headstone. Names are Frederick Howard and Elizabeth Cameron Stevenson.

Many thanks

Hi all

I have quite a lot of information on this relative and I know most of the medals he was awarded but I am trying to identify the ribbons on his uniform in the attached photo. Date taken is unknown. William enlisted as a regular in 1946 and died of his wounds 9th September 1950. I have the list of medals from the Korean War Veterans Memorial Honor Roll and these include - Purple Heart, National Defense medal, Korean service medal, United Nations Service Medal, Republic of Korea War Service medal, Combat Infantryman Badge. Also the Republic of Korea Presidential Unit citation.
I am presuming this photo would have be taken before Korea so my hunch is the ribbons don't really relate to Korea. I have looked at the many websites about ribbons and badges but can't seem to identify anything.
Any thoughts from anybody would be good.

World War Two / WW2 Portrait of pilot and navigator by Cuthbert Orde
« on: Sunday 25 March 18 21:51 BST (UK)  »
Have been having a tidy up and came across a copy of a portrait of my father (navigator) along with his pilot. It was completed in February 1944. They were in the RNZAF 487 squadron who took part in Operation Jericho. The portrait is quite unusual as Orde mainly did pilots on their own. Although they are New Zealanders I wondered if it is worth checking if a museum here would like a copy. ??
Any thoughts/advice would be good

Thanks in advance
