I am grateful to Peter's son, Willy for providing the following information.
Peter was a Petty Officer Stores Assistant who served on HMNZS Gambia during WWII. His son, Willy, said that he was at the surrender in Tokyo and reported the surrender proceedings back to NZ by radio in the Maori language. He passed away in 1982 as have his 4 brothers who also served in WWII, 3 in the 28th Maori Battalion and 1 in the RNZAF.
