Has your partner requested access to his adoption file?

Does he have his original birth certificate?

Have you tried Navy archives for a record of personnel?

Have you contact the New Zealand Chef's Association?  A representative in the Hawkes Bay area; or even the current owners of restaurants may know of someone with that description.

It gets a bit hard to help without names, dates etc but the details of living people are protected on this forum so you are advised not to post them.

You might consider getting the help of a programme called Lost & Found on TV3 if you end up exhausting all other avenues yourself http://www.rootschat.com/links/01m51/
