I am looking to research my Great Uncle D'arcy Reynolds SIMPSON Poole Street Motueka born 1919.
My mother said he was in the Air Force and went to war and that he was shot down but do not know any other details. Mr Grand Mother was Mime Veronica Mallard nee Simpson. My Grand father was William (Bill) Mallard brother of Colin Mallard and Uncle to Trevor Mallard MP. There was a reunion of the Simpsons in Motueka in about 1972. I would like any information please.

Quite a bit of information about the Motueka War Memorial and
Motueka Memorial Hall can be found in the Motueka Historical Assn. Journal, Vol 8, "And So it Began: Further Stories of Motueka Through the Years", pub. 2013. Copies are held by the Motueka Library or can be purchased through the Motueka District Museum (email: savepast@snap.net.nz)

Coincidentally there is also a section on the history of the Quayle family in Motueka in this same volume.
