Timothy, who’s Great Grandfather served at Gallipoli and now an Honorary Ambassador of New Plymouth District, gave us a report on his many experiences during the trip including the highlight of being at Gallipoli coupled with the lifetime friendships he also earned. Timothy is currently training to be a Chef and hopes to be accepted into the N.Z. Navy to begin a career as a Chef.
