My Dad was a Captain in the US Marines 2nd Division.
While in NZ he found himself in the top of the South where he met my mother and we still have the telegram from his commanding officer giving him permission to marry my mum. He was a great father, much loved

Thanks for letting us know about this Brett. I've adjusted the map marker accordingly. Regards, Gareth Phipps

Your Camp Hillcrest marker appears to be in the wrong place. Should be over the Hillcrest reserve in Hillcrest Ave.
