The photo below, provided by John Holms, shows a visit to Auckland by HMY Britannia in 1974 with MLs, port and starboard. On the port side was Olphert’s ML before it went back south to Wellington and a month or so later it had to be beached somewhere on the South Island because of the pounding it took attempting to get to Waitangi after the Commonwealth Games. Three reservists from Ngapona were on Olphert’s ML it at the time, including yours truly and also a reservist who went on to become a Radio New Zealand broadcaster on Tongan affairs as well as radio broadcaster for Tongan Radio at the First Rugby World Cup in 1987. Who remembers Henry Te’hua?
