‘Surviving war is<br />

a matter of luck’<br />

THE KOREAN Armistice<br />

Agreement brought about a<br />

complete cessation of hostilities<br />

of the Korean War, and<br />

Forbes Taylor well knows the<br />

70th anniversary of that very<br />

important ceasefire date – July<br />

27, 1953.<br />

Back 70 years ago Forbes,<br />

a former Woolston resident,<br />

who now lives at Ngaio Marsh<br />

Retirement Village, was near<br />

the frontline of a war that<br />

had been running for three<br />

years.<br />

He remembers on the night<br />

after the ceasefire had been<br />

announced there were flares let<br />

off and search lights shone into<br />

the sky above the new division<br />

between north and south.<br />

“It took effect at 10 o’clock at<br />

night. The armistice was read<br />

out to us, and then suddenly all<br />

the war zone lit up with search<br />

lights and rockets and things.<br />

It was a very colourful display<br />

with all those lights from the<br />

flare guns and search lights,”<br />

he remembered the day<br />

after celebrating his 92nd<br />

birthday last week.<br />

There was a feeling of<br />

celebration amongst the allies<br />

in the south because they had<br />

won further ground to the<br />

north of Seoul that would form<br />

part of the new South Korea,<br />

Forbes said.<br />

The bitter conflict began in<br />

June 1950, with North Korea<br />

supported by China and the<br />

Soviet Union. Talks concerning<br />

an armistice had started as<br />

early as July 10, 1951, but the<br />

frontline remained a dangerous<br />

place. Forbes said it was really<br />

a matter of luck as to whether<br />

he and other fellow servicemen<br />

survived.<br />

It was June 1953 and Forbes<br />

had not long been flown into<br />

Gimpo Airport, near Seoul.<br />

He had joined the Signals C or<br />

‘Charlie Troop’ to help service<br />

the telephone lines that were<br />

used by 1st Commonwealth<br />

division troops including in the<br />

‘Battle of the Hook’.<br />

Meeting<br />

over<br />

cruise<br />

ship<br />

concerns<br />

LYTTELTON residents will get<br />

an opportunity to voice their<br />

concerns about the upcoming<br />

cruise ship season and the impact<br />

it may have on the community.<br />

Te Pātaka o Rākaihautū Banks<br />

Peninsula Community Board<br />

will host the meeting at 7pm<br />

on Tuesday at The Loons on<br />

Canterbury St. Representatives<br />

from the Lyttelton Port Company,<br />

Environment Canterbury,<br />

ChristchurchNZ, the city council<br />

and the NZ Cruise Association<br />

will be on board to answer<br />

questions.<br />

The meeting comes after ECan<br />

chair Peter Scott promised to find<br />

a solution to reduce the impact of<br />

cruise ship on its buses services<br />

which are struggling to keep<br />

up with demand. More than 70<br />

cruise ships visited the Port of<br />

Lyttelton over the past 12 months,<br />

with almost 125,850 visitors<br />

docking in the new purpose-built<br />

Lyttelton terminal. The next<br />

cruise ship season is due to start<br />

in November.<br />

Community board chair Lyn<br />

Leslie said residents will be able<br />

to engage with some of the key<br />

agencies. •Turn to page 3<br />

Ceremonial planting marks<br />

start of reforestation project<br />

THE FIRST native trees have<br />

been planted at Te Kaio farm in<br />

a joint project between Wairewa<br />

Rūnanga and Orion Group.<br />

The team from Orion joined<br />

whānau from Wairewa on<br />

Sunday for a blessing led by<br />

Bishop Richard Wallace, iwi<br />

rangatira and ECAN councillor<br />

Iaean Cranwell, and Charisma<br />

Rangipunga.<br />

Following karakia and<br />

speeches, the two groups joined<br />

to plant two totara seedlings<br />

and two kōwhai seedlings before<br />

heading back to the farmhouse<br />

to share kai and a cuppa.<br />

“We’ve embarked on a<br />

journey with Wairewa to return<br />

the kahukura to Te Kaio. It<br />

was a significant step on that<br />

journey to stand at Te Kaio<br />

today and join the whānau in<br />

planting the first of what will<br />

soon be many trees on this<br />

whenua,” said Orion Group<br />

chief executive Nigel Barbour,<br />

who planted one of the trees<br />

alongside Wairewa Rūnanga<br />

chair Jaleesa Panirau.<br />

Said Wairewa Orion steering<br />

group member Ana Gray: “The<br />

blessing on Sunday was such an<br />

important step for us. It sets us<br />

all on the right path forward for<br />

TEAM UP: A joint reforestation project between Wairewa Rūnanga and Orion Group is<br />

under way near Little River.<br />

this intergenerational kaupapa.”<br />

In February, Wairewa<br />

Rūnanga, Te Kete o Wairewa (its<br />

legal entity) and Orion Group<br />

signed an agreement to recloak<br />

Te Kaio farm, a 280-hectare<br />

block of ex-farmland near Little<br />

River, belonging to the rūnanga.<br />

The planting ceremony marks<br />

the start of work to plant 50,000<br />

trees in the<br />

first year of the long-term<br />

project.<br />

It will add to the significant<br />

local efforts to return the<br />

Peninsula to its former forested<br />

state.<br />

Once the replanting is<br />

completed, both parties will<br />

enter the carbon farming<br />

market together and receive<br />

a share of the carbon credits<br />

issued via the New Zealand<br />

Emissions Trading Scheme.<br />

On behalf of Orion, Barbour<br />

was gifted a pounamu taonga<br />

(treasure) by the rūnanga, which<br />

they blessed and gifted the<br />

name Matatoki, one of the three<br />

stars of Tautoru, or Orion’s Belt.<br />

“It was really overwhelming, I<br />

didn’t expect it and I’m certainly<br />

incredibly grateful,” said<br />

Barbour.<br />

“We’re looking forward to<br />

getting stuck into the mahi.”<br />

Range of<br />

solutions to<br />

be discussed<br />

•From page 1<br />

“This meeting offers a chance<br />

to listen to the local Lyttelton<br />

community and understand their<br />

views and concerns. It’s important<br />

to hear from the<br />

wider community<br />

so we can gain<br />

a collective<br />

understanding of<br />

a range of views,”<br />

said Leslie (right).<br />

“We want to<br />

make sure everyone is heard.”<br />

A range of possible solutions<br />

to the Lyttelton community’s<br />

concerns will be explored,<br />

including potential approaches to<br />

public transport congestion.<br />

The meeting will be led by an<br />

independent facilitator.<br />

Said ChristchurchNZ general<br />

manager of destination and<br />

attraction Loren Heaphy: “Cruise<br />

is a unique sector within the<br />

visitor economy in that there are<br />

numerous agencies responsible for<br />

various aspects of the system. The<br />

volume of visitors who arrive in<br />

a destination on a cruise ship can<br />

have both positive and negative<br />

impacts for the community and<br />

the economy. We recognise this<br />

and are committed to working<br />

alongside the industry on the<br />

season ahead in a cohesive,<br />

considered and collaborative way.”<br />

Scholarship recipients share what<br />

The Sumner Ferrymead<br />

scholarships and awards<br />

evening in early July.<br />

Today the recipients talk<br />

about what they are<br />

studying and why they<br />

love living in the <strong>Bay</strong><br />

<strong>Harbour</strong> News area<br />

Judson Bamford<br />

Recipient of the<br />

$2000 apprenticeship<br />

award, sponsored by Laser<br />

Plumbing Christchurch<br />

East<br />

The best part of the apprenticeship<br />

so far has to be my work<br />

mates – funny and relatable, just<br />

good company to be around.<br />

However, when it comes to the<br />

worst part, digging holes is always<br />

a bit of a drag.<br />

In five years’ time I’m hoping<br />

to be looking, if not serving, in<br />

the New Zealand Defence Force,<br />

most likely as a builder.<br />

During the summer I enjoy<br />

surfing, diving or quite frankly<br />

anything to do with the sea. And<br />

as the water cools down for the<br />

winter I am very into my hockey<br />

and, of course, skiing.<br />

What I love about the Sumner<br />

Ferrymead community is the<br />

connections you have with<br />

people. Whether they’re an old<br />

Judson Bamford Tom Barker Zach Waite<br />

friend from primary school,<br />

or your dad’s friend’s son,<br />

everyone knows everyone and it<br />

creates a tight yet friendly community.<br />

I am eternally grateful to<br />

Laser Plumbing Christchurch<br />

East and the Sumner Ferrymead<br />

Foundation for this opportunity.<br />

The award will help me out now<br />

(with the purchase of tools) and<br />

will further aid my career. Once<br />

again, many thanks.<br />

Tom Barker<br />

Recipient of $5000<br />

Health Sciences<br />

Scholarship, sponsored by<br />

RJ Begg and Associates –<br />

Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery<br />

I am a second-year student at<br />

Otago University, majoring in<br />

neuroscience with a minor in<br />

pharmacology.<br />

In five years’ time I plan to<br />

have completed my degree<br />

and possibly begun a research<br />

career at a pharmaceutical<br />

or biomedical company,<br />

investigating treatments for<br />

neurological disorders and<br />

diseases.<br />

In my downtime I enjoy<br />

mountain biking and surfing, as<br />

well as diving and running.<br />

Living in the Sumner<br />

Ferrymead community means I<br />

get to enjoy both the close access<br />

to the beach and hills, as well as<br />

the close community in which I<br />

have grown up in and now have<br />

some great friends in.<br />

I am extremely grateful for<br />

being chosen as the recipient of<br />

the Health Sciences Scholarship.<br />

I want to thank RJ Begg and<br />

Associates for their generosity<br />

as it will be helpful in funding<br />

my course costs and getting my<br />

degree.<br />

Zack Waite<br />

Recipient of the $5000<br />

Science Scholarship,<br />

sponsored by a Redcliffs<br />

resident<br />

I am a second-year tertiary<br />

student, studying a Bachelor of<br />

Software Engineering at Canterbury<br />

University.<br />

My career path is centred<br />

around a key goal – to contribute<br />

to solving important societal<br />

problems with exciting innovative<br />

technology.<br />

I’m not sure I will be quite<br />

there within five years. However,<br />

I see myself in a role helping me<br />

build the relevant experience and<br />

skills to reach a level where I can<br />

dedicate my efforts to projects I<br />

will enjoy.<br />

This could look like a role at<br />

a start-up, getting the feel for<br />

beginning-to-end product creation,<br />

or being a part of a dynamic<br />

team at an established innovative<br />

firm.<br />

I love taking an active relaxing<br />

approach during my spare time.<br />

You might spot me running<br />

along the Summit Rd, out the<br />

back at Sumner beach or at the<br />

hockey turf. I also love a hit of<br />

tennis down at the Redcliffs Tennis<br />

Club, with a fierce inter-family<br />

tennis match-up. I enjoy nothing<br />

more than competing and a<br />

bit of banter, meaning you would<br />

find me most evenings down at<br />

the UC basketball courts, or at<br />

my flat table playing cards.<br />

The Sumner Ferrymead community<br />

couldn’t cater better to<br />

a ‘do-ers’ or a ‘chillers’ lifestyle.<br />

The multitude of high performance<br />

sporting opportunities,<br />

and the spider web of trails in the<br />

Port Hills fulfil all your active<br />

needs. A morning of serenity on<br />

Sumner beach or a sun-soaked<br />

cafe is never further then a<br />

five-minute drive. This combination<br />

of relaxation and activity has<br />

certainly cultivated my love for<br />

all parts of the community, and<br />

scenery.<br />

To the Redcliffs resident<br />

who sponsored the award, the<br />

Sumner Ferrymead Foundation<br />

trustees and others who make<br />

these scholarships possible, I<br />

can’t thank you enough for your<br />

support and the impact you have<br />

on the community.<br />

Sophia Clark<br />

Recipient of the $5000<br />

Humanities Scholarship.<br />

This scholarship is in<br />

memory of Richard<br />

Brinkman<br />

I am studying a double<br />

major in sociology and social<br />

development at Victoria<br />

University, Wellington.<br />

In five years, my goal is<br />

to work on the ground for<br />

humanitarian aid or continue<br />

studying social development.<br />

I aspire to make a positive<br />

impact on communities in<br />

need. I am enthusiastic about<br />

the opportunities ahead and the<br />

potential to create meaningful<br />

change in people’s lives.<br />

In my downtime, I enjoy<br />

exploring new places with my<br />

friends and painting.<br />

Things I love about the<br />

Sumner Ferrymead community,<br />

even though I do not live here<br />

anymore, are the welcoming<br />

atmosphere and the enjoyment<br />

of having a good home-cooked<br />

meal when I visit, and of course<br />

seeing my family and good<br />

friends from home.<br />

I would like to express<br />

my heartfelt gratitude to my<br />

generous sponsor for their<br />

support. Their scholarship will<br />

make a significant difference<br />

in my academic journey,<br />

supporting me with the means to<br />

Recipient of the $2500<br />

Scholarship plus Internship<br />

sponsored by SBS Wealth<br />

I am in my second year at<br />

Otago University, majoring in<br />

finance and accounting.<br />

In five years’ time, I will<br />

hopefully be helping companies<br />

make more sustainable<br />

investment decisions, and<br />

minimising the environmental<br />

and social impacts.<br />

I have always had a love for<br />

sport, especially with an oval<br />

ball. In my downtime I enjoy<br />

watching and playing, and<br />

spending time with mates<br />

through that.<br />

There’s no better place to<br />

grow up than this suburb of<br />

Christchurch. People, beaches,<br />

hills, community. Everyone<br />

knows everyone, it’s great.<br />

Predator Free Port Hills is<br />

a backyard and community<br />

trapping programme which aims<br />

to eliminate rats, possums and<br />

mustelids from the Port Hills<br />

and Lyttelton <strong>Harbour</strong> by 2050.<br />

Our vision is to protect<br />

native species and to see their<br />

populations flourish in our<br />

neighbourhoods, local parks<br />

and reserves, farmland and bush<br />

areas. The funds will be used<br />

to support our Sumner <strong>Bay</strong>s<br />

community area (Heathcote<br />

to Taylor’s Mistake), funding<br />

two community trap building<br />

days, giving away native shrubs<br />

to boost backyard biodiversity<br />

and supporting a trial of the<br />

DOC150 trap out of the Mt<br />

Pleasant Farmers Market to<br />

increase captures of mustelids in<br />

particular.<br />

In five years’ time, we aim to<br />

have 4000 households trapping<br />

on the Port Hills and in 10 years<br />

time, we want to see landscapescale<br />

predator control across the<br />

entire Port Hills and our bird life<br />

flourishing.<br />

We are very grateful to the<br />

sponsor for their vision and<br />

foresight in sponsoring the<br />

Environment Award. We are<br />

facing a biodiversity crisis and<br />

many of our birds, lizards<br />

and insects are on the verge of<br />

extinction. The financial support<br />

offered by the award will enable us<br />

to take practical action to restore<br />

habitat and reduce predator<br />

numbers in the Sumner <strong>Bay</strong>s area<br />

Help us to help oth<br />

so our native fauna can thrive.<br />

Veteran looks back on Korean War<br />

• From page 1<br />

He remembers desperate<br />

night-time attacks by the<br />

Chinese, trying to capture Hook<br />

valley territory before the July<br />

ceasefire was called. During this<br />

time repairs were needed on the<br />

telephone lines. The Chinese<br />

were repelled by United Nations<br />

forces, he said.<br />

On one frontline occasion, a<br />

shell exploded about 40 yards<br />

(36.5 metres) away. But it could<br />

have easily been much, much<br />

closer.<br />

“I thought, good heavens, I<br />

could have been there (under the<br />

shell). I came to the conclusion:<br />

surviving war is a matter of<br />

luck,” he said.<br />

Because he had arrived<br />

towards the end of physical<br />

warfare, Forbes spent much of<br />

his 18 months of service during<br />

the period of ceasefire. There<br />

were moments of tension, but<br />

also the chance for rest and<br />

relaxation. While the Americans<br />

would fly the Kiwi contingent to<br />

Tokyo, Forbes would sometimes<br />

push on to other destinations<br />

including the post-atomic bomb<br />

Hiroshima.<br />

Later it was quite a trip home<br />

from his period of service. He’d<br />

sailed from Pusan to Brisbane,<br />

where he and other troops<br />

marched and were cheered by<br />

the crowds, on to Kingsford<br />

Smith Airport, Sydney, and New<br />

Zealand. On his arrival back<br />

in Christchurch his mum was<br />

there. He was also greeted by<br />

Government representatives at<br />

the King Edward Barracks in the<br />

city.<br />

He is matter of fact when<br />

relating how his mother coped<br />

with men going to war. Forbes’<br />

maternal grandfather, Thomas<br />

Phillips Lloyd, had fought in the<br />

Second Anglo-Afghan War of<br />

1878-1880. Forbes’ father was<br />

one of the 20 survivors within a<br />

100-strong company caught at<br />

Passchendaele in World War 1.<br />

Forbes is very proud of his<br />

siblings. One older brother Lloyd<br />

served in “Sunderland flying<br />

boats” safeguarding convoys in<br />

World War 2, but then died at 23,<br />

after his return to New Zealand,<br />

in a motorcycle accident near<br />

Ashburton.<br />

His other brother Ross<br />

was involved Nasa’s space<br />

programme. He was the first<br />

geochemist to get his hands<br />

on the samples of moon rock,<br />

SERVICE: Forbes with his medals in 2013 and at the<br />

Korean War Memorial unveiling in 2005.<br />

picked up by Neil Armstrong<br />

and Buzz Aldrin, and brought<br />

back to Earth by Apollo 11.<br />

Forbes has kept up with the<br />

Korean political standoff, and<br />

has been part of Christchurchbased<br />

recognition of progress<br />

between the two sides. He and<br />

family members including his<br />

wife have revisited South Korea<br />

many times.<br />

In April 2018, North Korea<br />

and South Korea agreed to talks<br />

to end the ongoing 65-year<br />

conflict.<br />

Robertson opens up<br />

– and says goodbye<br />

VICTORY: Scott Robertson and Richie Mo’unga celebrate<br />

after the Crusaders beat the Chiefs to win the Super Rugby<br />

Pacific title in Hamilton.<br />

A DEPARTING Scott Robertson<br />

has opened up on his career<br />

as Crusaders coach in his final<br />

interview before taking on the<br />

All Blacks role in November.<br />

The Sumner local won seven<br />

Super Rugby titles as coach<br />

and four as a player. He takes<br />

over from Ian Foster as All<br />

Blacks coach after the Rugby<br />

World Cup. In a video posted<br />

by the Crusaders, an emotional<br />

Robertson looks back on his<br />

time with the franchise and how<br />

much it has meant to him.<br />

“To give back to a jersey that<br />

has given me so much . . . it’s<br />

special that I can walk away and<br />

go ‘thanks for everything, I’m<br />

a better man for it. And thank<br />

you’,” he said in the video.<br />

Robertson also got emotional<br />

while reflecting on his final game<br />

in Christchurch – the 52-15 semifinal<br />

thrashing of the Blues. He<br />

admitted being nervous about<br />

the potential of ending his stint<br />

with a semi-final defeat and went<br />

onto the ground and revved up<br />

the home crowd before the game.<br />

“Probably that moment was<br />

my last time at Orangetheory, at<br />

the home ground . . . I just felt we<br />

needed it. I just thought it was<br />

going to be a special moment. A<br />

chance to bring us all together.<br />

It was a chance to get our people<br />

on our feet but also a thank<br />

you from me. To say ‘let’s enjoy<br />

this – this is our moment. Stay<br />

here now, we’re on’. And the<br />

performance probably reflected<br />

that,” he says.<br />

“I was pretty nervous too. I<br />

thought we needed the crowd<br />

that night. It was the end of a<br />

career, if you end on a semifinal<br />

at home, at a place you’ve never<br />

lost in a final ... I thought we’re<br />

all in. It was a pretty special<br />

moment.”<br />

Last week Robertson penned a<br />

goodbye letter to Crusaders fans.<br />

He also thanked the players<br />

•Watch<br />

Scott<br />

Robertson’s<br />

departing<br />

video<br />

on the<br />

Crusaders<br />

website<br />

and their families for<br />

their support and respect –<br />

and for keeping him<br />

accountable.<br />

Robertson says so much of who<br />

he and his family are – and who<br />

he aspires to be – is linked to red<br />

and black.<br />

“This week was my last at<br />

Rugby Park and boy does it feel<br />

strange to say that,” Robertson<br />

said in the message shared by the<br />

Crusaders.<br />

“My time as a Crusaders head<br />

coach is over and my focus has<br />

shifted to my ever-supportive<br />

family and my own development<br />

ahead of the next big challenge,”<br />

it said.<br />

The<br />

YUMMI<br />

study.<br />

The role of cow, goat or sheep milk in<br />

the nutrition and health of older women.<br />

Milk provides important nutrients that help older people to maintain<br />

muscle and bone health, and low milk intake is often associated with<br />

poor nutrition in older adults.<br />

We are looking for female volunteers aged 60 to 80 years to participate<br />

in the YUMMI study, a 12-week research study investigating the health<br />

effects of consuming different types milk – cow, goat, or sheep.<br />

We will provide you with cow, goat or sheep milk powder to drink<br />

twice a day for 12-weeks, or you will be asked to eat your normal diet<br />

(control group). The time commitment for the study will be about 11<br />

hours and you will attend five clinic visits. You will receive up to $220 in<br />

supermarket vouchers in recognition of the actual or reasonable costs<br />

involved with participating in this study (e.g. parking and/or travel costs).<br />

If you are a woman aged 60 to 80 years and can drink milk, we would<br />

love to hear from you.<br />

Radio Avon back – for a day<br />

• By Tony Simons<br />

PERSONALITIES: Murray Inglis (above) and Lee Hanner<br />

(below right) preparing for the launch in July 1973.<br />

RADIO AVON, the station<br />

that shook up the Christchurch<br />

establishment and ended<br />

government-owned 3ZB’s<br />

dominance of the airwaves, will<br />

return for a brief reprise on the<br />

weekend.<br />

More than 40 of its former<br />

staff are back for a broadcast and<br />

a reunion marking 50 years since<br />

Radio Avon 1290 was launched<br />

on <strong>August</strong> 4, 1973.<br />

The first private radio station<br />

in the city, it made an immediate<br />

impact with its new mix of pop<br />

music and on-air personalities –<br />

in the mould of Radio Hauraki,<br />

which had been enjoying similar<br />

success in Auckland.<br />

Two former Avon announcers,<br />

Morry Shanahan and Kim<br />

Adamson, will be fronting a<br />

two-hour special on community<br />

station 96.9 Plains FM from<br />

10am on Saturday.<br />

The programme will be<br />

streamed around the world,<br />

something that would never have<br />

been possible in 1973.<br />

At one time in its 17-year<br />

history, Radio Avon had 55 per<br />

cent of Christchurch people<br />

tuning in. The journey ended<br />

in 1990 when it merged with<br />

another station and was later<br />

rebranded C93FM.<br />

Many of the original onair<br />

team from 1973 are still<br />

remembered today, such as<br />

programme director Graeme<br />

Parsonage, who was widely<br />

credited for the station’s success.<br />

Others include Wayne<br />

Douglas, Mike Richardson<br />

and perhaps the best known,<br />

Murray “Muzza” Inglis, who<br />

was still broadcasting on his<br />

own suburban radio station in<br />

Auckland until he died this year,<br />

aged 80.<br />

In a famous stunt in 1977<br />

Inglis threw a tantrum on air,<br />

apparently in an argument with<br />

management over his contract<br />

renewal. He locked himself<br />

in the studio and continued<br />

to broadcast by himself for 48<br />

hours.<br />

At the time, very few station<br />

staff knew it was a stunt and the<br />

story made headlines around the<br />

world.<br />

Shanahan, who joined the<br />

announcing team later in 1973,<br />

remembers some of the tricks<br />

they employed to increase<br />

audiences ratings.<br />

“We used to play the records<br />

at a higher speed to create more<br />

pace,” he said. “Not enough that<br />

the audience would notice, but<br />

enough to give the station a more<br />

lively sound – 45s were played at<br />

48rpm and LPs at 35rpm instead<br />

of 33.”<br />

Another original on-air<br />

personality was Lee Hanner,<br />

who moved into the Lyttelton<br />

Timeball Station with his family<br />

when the city council was<br />

looking for a live-in manager.<br />

After the Timeball was badly<br />

damaged in the February 22,<br />

2011 earthquake, Hanner talked<br />

about his time there and how it<br />

fitted in perfectly with his 8pmto-midnight<br />

shift at Radio Avon.<br />

“I’d get home about one in the<br />

morning and, with moonlight<br />

the double murder. Foy had<br />

A Day of Fire<br />

A Novel of Pompeii by Kate Quinn<br />

From six bestselling authors, including New York Times<br />

bestseller Kate Quinn, comes a vividly imagined novel following<br />

the lives of those in ancient Pompeii on the fateful day Mount<br />

Vesuvius erupts. Pompeii was a lively resort flourishing in the<br />

shadow of Mount Vesuvius at the height of the Roman Empire.<br />

When Vesuvius erupted in an explosion of flame and ash, the entire<br />

town would be destroyed. Some of its citizens died in the chaos, some<br />

escaped the mountain’s wrath . . . and these are their stories:<br />

A boy loses his innocence in Pompeii’s flourishing streets. An heiress dreads<br />

her wedding day, not knowing it will be swallowed by fire. An ex-legionary<br />

stakes his entire future on a gladiator bout destined never to be finished. A<br />

crippled senator welcomes death, until a tomboy on horseback comes to his<br />

rescue. A young mother faces an impossible choice for her unborn child as<br />

the ash falls. A priestess and a prostitute seek redemption and resurrection<br />

as the town is buried. Six authors bring to life overlapping stories of<br />

patricians and slaves, warriors and politicians, villains and heroes who cross<br />

each other’s paths during Pompeii’s fiery end. But who will escape, and who<br />

will be buried for eternity<br />

The Trackers<br />

by Charles Frazier<br />

The stunning new novel from the author of international million-copy bestseller<br />

Cold Mountain Hurtling past the downtrodden communities of Depression-era<br />

America, painter Val Welch travels westward to the rural town of Dawes, Wyoming.<br />

Through a stroke of luck, he’s landed a New Deal assignment to create a mural<br />

representing the region for their new Post Office. A wealthy art lover named John<br />

Long and his wife Eve have agreed to host Val at their sprawling ranch. Rumors and<br />

intrigue surround the couple: Eve left behind an itinerant life riding the rails and<br />

singing in a western swing band. Long holds shady political aspirations, but was<br />

once a WWI sniper—and his right hand is a mysterious elder cowboy, a vestige of<br />

the violent old west. Val quickly finds himself entranced by their lives. One day, Eve<br />

flees home with a valuable painting in tow, and Long recruits Val to hit the road<br />

with a mission of tracking her down. Journeying from ramshackle Hoovervilles to<br />

San Francisco nightclubs to the swamps of Florida, Val’s search for Eve narrows,<br />

and he soon turns up secrets that could spark formidable changes for all of them.<br />

Feeling bloated<br />

or have a sore stomach?<br />

The Soothe Study is recruiting now.<br />

We are looking for people with functional dyspepsia (indigestion) to<br />

participate in a research study investigating the digestive health effects<br />

of consuming mānuka honey.<br />

Symptoms of functional dyspepsia include:<br />

• pain or burning in the stomach, bloating, excessive belching (burping)<br />

or nausea after meals<br />

• an early feeling of fullness when eating<br />

• pain in the stomach that may sometimes occur unrelated to meals or<br />

may be relieved by eating.<br />

After a two-week lead-in period, we will provide you with mānuka honey<br />

or a honey-like product to eat before breakfast and dinner every day for<br />

six-weeks. Two weeks later we will again ask you about your functional<br />

dyspepsia symptoms.<br />

The time commitment for this study will be about 10 hours and you will<br />

attend six clinic visits in total. You will receive up to $220 in supermarket<br />

vouchers in recognition of the actual or reasonable costs associated with<br />

participating in this study (e.g., parking and/or travel costs).<br />

If you experience symptoms of functional dyspepsia, and are aged<br />

18 to 70 years we would love to hear from you.<br />

National titles continue Kartstore<br />

team’s ‘extraordinary’ three years<br />

A team of young kart<br />

racers have had a<br />

season of highlights<br />

driving for the WKS<br />

Kartstore<br />

MEDBURY SCHOOL pupil<br />

Zach Tucker won the Vortex<br />

Mini Rok for the third time in<br />

a row this season– while Henry<br />

Fisher, who is also at Medbury,<br />

and Aryan Lala filled the<br />

podium.<br />

Cathedral Grammar School<br />

pupil Iver Spence won the Cadet<br />

Rok and Caleb Cross took out<br />

the Rotax Light. Fellow team<br />

member Jack McGrath finished<br />

fifth in the Vortex Mini Rok.<br />

The three national titles in key<br />

kartsport development classes<br />

– and the clean sweep of the<br />

podium in VMR – have been the<br />

highlights of the season so far for<br />

the team at WKS Kartstore.<br />

When you consider director<br />

Matt Hamilton and his father<br />

John have 30 New Zealand sprint<br />

titles in karting between them,<br />

their success is less of a surprise.<br />

The team has operated in<br />

Christchurch for four decades.<br />

“We have had an extraordinary<br />

last three years,” said Matt.<br />

“Along with TC Performance,<br />

we have won the last three Cadet<br />

and Mini Rok NZ sprint titles.<br />

That’s every national sprint title<br />

in those classes since the inception<br />

of the 950 homologated<br />

chassis. And we have won five of<br />

the last six VMR national sprint<br />

titles. It is a great run.<br />

“I love it. Our core focus is the<br />

young guys. They are the ones<br />

travelling and chasing championships.<br />

I love working with<br />

them.”<br />

He said it was very rewarding<br />

to see their passion grow.<br />

“When they get in to it, often<br />

it is just something to try with<br />

the family, but to see it grow to<br />

a passion and see their development<br />

is pretty cool. And it is nice<br />

to help with that.”<br />

Let’s not forget those “young<br />

kids” grow up – and the WKS<br />

Kartstore team have continued<br />

to nurture them.<br />

It’s quite a list, but includes<br />

the likes of Marcus Armstrong,<br />

now in IndyCar; 17-year-old<br />

Jacob Douglas, based in Indianapolis<br />

and impressing in the<br />

feeder class to IndyCar; teenager<br />

Callum Hedge, who has made<br />

a successful start to his Porsche<br />

racing season in Australia; and<br />

NZ Elite Academy winner James<br />

Penrose.<br />

The list started with father<br />

John, who began racing karts<br />

in the 1970s and gained success<br />

overseas, mostly in England,<br />

before returning to start the<br />

business in 1981. He drove 100cc<br />

classes in NZ and England.<br />

“He started racing in his mid-<br />

20s – everything was done later<br />

in life. It was not professional<br />

then – just racing for the passion<br />

and the folly,” said Matt.<br />

Matt and sister Fiona grew up<br />

in motorsport and both raced.<br />

Matt raced the 2001 Rotax World<br />

Finals in Malaysia, where he met<br />

a racing team from Bahrain, who<br />

invited him to join them 24-hour<br />

kart racing in Asia.<br />

“Ï was meant to go back to<br />

New Zealand for uni, but instead<br />

I went straight to Oman, and<br />

travelled regularly to the Middle<br />

East, Asia, and Europe, which<br />

was quite exciting. There were<br />

no race car tracks in the Middle<br />

East so karting and rally were<br />

the focus. It was quite big and<br />

attracted big sponsors and<br />

backers,” Matt said.<br />

The team was backed by the<br />

Crown Prince of Bahrain, and<br />

with their help, Matt’s intention<br />

was to compete in Formula<br />

Renault in the UK. When that<br />

programme wound down,<br />

Matt returned home to race<br />

successfully for the Karcher<br />

team in the Toyota Racing series,<br />

winning the Lady Wigram<br />

Trophy, and eventually moving<br />

to Auckland to work for the<br />

sponsor. There, he met Ron<br />

Dixon who helped him into Indy<br />

Lights in the USA.<br />

“The Indy Light experience<br />

was amazing. It was a huge step<br />

up and a culture shock. It was<br />

more ovals than road courses.<br />

This was a completely new<br />

experience for me, unlike the<br />

guys I was racing against, some<br />

of which had been racing on<br />

ovals since they could first drive<br />

a go-kart.<br />

“You go to the fairgrounds<br />

on a Sunday mornings and kids<br />

are racing staggered go karts<br />

on circle tracks, that was the<br />

American culture. The cars were<br />

big powerful V8s and it was a<br />

steep learning curve.<br />

“We were a one-car team<br />

with a very limited budget, and<br />

while it could not last, it was an<br />

unforgettable and rewarding<br />

experience.”<br />

Matt returned home, and<br />

after a stint with Team Kiwi<br />

in Australia racing V8s, he<br />

joined his father in the business<br />

in Christchurch, developing<br />

the burgeoning karting<br />

operation, supplying karts and<br />

parts, building engines, and<br />

establishing the race team.<br />

Racing has now taken a back<br />

seat to help the youngsters,<br />

but you’ll still see Matt in a<br />

race car where he can – in<br />

2<strong>02</strong>2, he became the only<br />

racer in NZ history to add<br />

The Wigram Cup to his Lady<br />

Wigram Trophy. Over the last<br />

decade Matt has been joined<br />

by Tiffany, three-time British<br />

Kart Champion and arguably<br />

the best female karter to grace<br />

the sport in Europe. TC Performance<br />

was launched, which<br />

has greatly complimented the<br />

WKS operation, providing oneon-one<br />

coaching and advanced<br />

high-performance tuition in and<br />

out of the kart, and race-craft<br />

guidance.<br />

“There has always been<br />

a huge amount of talent<br />

running through here. While<br />

Tiff and I are at races with the<br />

race team, then Dad is at home<br />

looking after the business and<br />

building engines. It is working<br />

well.” The reward is to see the<br />

development of the young<br />

drivers – in and out of the kart.<br />

TREASURES FROM THE PAST<br />

Seaman’s tragic end aboard<br />

Captain Scott’s Discovery<br />

ON DECEMBER 21, 1901, the<br />

Discovery, commanded by<br />

Captain Robert Falcon Scott,<br />

departed Whakaraupō Lyttelton<br />

<strong>Harbour</strong> on the 1901-04<br />

National Antarctic Expedition.<br />

Discovery was accompanied<br />

by the steam tug Lyttelton to the<br />

heads and by HMS Ringarooma<br />

as far as Port Chalmers in<br />

Ōtākou Otago <strong>Harbour</strong>.<br />

Discovery was the first British<br />

ship built specifically for a<br />

scientific expedition, and for<br />

Scott’s proposed attempt on the<br />

South Pole. The three-masted<br />

wooden barque with a length of<br />

52.1m and weighing 485 tonnes,<br />

she was constructed in 1901 by<br />

Dundee Shipbuilders Company<br />

in Scotland, with a solid hull and<br />

iron clad bows intended to cope<br />

with the immense pressures of<br />

the Antarctic ice-fields.<br />

After her journey from<br />

England and on her arrival<br />

at Ōhinehou Lyttelton, which<br />

would be her base port for the<br />

southern expedition, Discovery<br />

entered dry dock. The evidently<br />

less than seaworthy condition<br />

of the rigging, deck and hold<br />

(which had filled with nearly 2m<br />

of seawater on the journey to<br />

Aotearoa New Zealand) required<br />

urgent attention. Crew from the<br />

HMS Ringarooma, a Royal Navy<br />

Pearl class cruiser and member<br />

of the Auxiliary Squadron of<br />

the Australia Station, were<br />

seconded to the Discovery to get<br />

her shipshape and ready for the<br />

coming rigours. Note that the<br />

photograph of the “Discovery”<br />

in dry dock is from her return<br />

in 1904, after nearly two years<br />

frozen in the ice at McMurdo<br />

Sound.<br />

December 21, the day of<br />

departure, was marked by<br />

huge fanfare, with a large<br />

crowd on the wharves and<br />

many cheering enthusiasts<br />

aboard steamers escorting the<br />

vessel to the harbour mouth.<br />

Once outside the heads HMS<br />

Ringarooma, and accompanying<br />

Royal Navy warship HMS<br />

Lizard prepared for a hearty<br />

naval acknowledgement as the<br />

Discovery passed between them.<br />

A sobering message relayed<br />

from Captain Scott stopped such<br />

celebratory actions: “Please do<br />

not cheer; a man has been killed<br />

by falling from aloft.”<br />

London-born seaman Charles<br />

Bonner, 23, had joined Discovery<br />

in Cape Town. Purportedly a<br />

skilled seaman and popular<br />

among the crew, his outgoing<br />

nature found him atop the<br />

mainmast that day, a great<br />

position from which to wave to<br />

the excited well-wishers. Official<br />

reports indicate a supporting<br />

spindle may have given way<br />

causing his fall, while anecdotal<br />

ones cited he was compromised<br />

from imbibing some celebratory<br />

liquor, as he was seen waving a<br />

bottle on his perch. Either way,<br />

as the ship entered the swell<br />

of the open ocean he lost his<br />

footing and fell 36.5m to the<br />

deck, hitting his head on an iron<br />

reel, which killed him instantly.<br />

Poignantly, the tiny figure<br />

of Bonner is just visible in the<br />

crow’s nest in the image to the<br />

left of Discovery departing the<br />

harbour, with tug Lyttelton to its<br />

left and HMS Ringarooma to its<br />

right. The photograph was taken<br />

just minutes before his death.<br />

The tragic loss of the young<br />

seaman affected the crew<br />

deeply, especially his noncommissioned<br />

fellows, and<br />

created a melancholy mood for<br />

the two-day journey to Port<br />

Chalmers. Flags flew at half-mast<br />

and Bonner’s body, wrapped in<br />

canvas and the British ensign<br />

as per naval custom, was laid<br />

out atop a table on deck. Upon<br />

arrival in Port Chalmers, his<br />

body was transferred to a coffin<br />

and gun carriage. Attended<br />

by crew of both the Discovery<br />

and Ringarooma, and with due<br />

naval and civic ceremony, he was<br />

interred in the Port Chalmers’<br />

cemetery.<br />

Before departing Port<br />

Chalmers for the polar regions,<br />

Scott funded the later erection of<br />

a suitable memorial – a 3m high<br />

marble obelisk on a bluestone<br />

base, inscribed with the words:<br />

“In memory of Charles Bonner,<br />

A.B., of the Antarctic exploring<br />

vessel ‘Discovery’, who died<br />

21st December, 1901. Aged 23.<br />

Erected by the captain, officers,<br />

scientific staff, and crew of the<br />

‘Discovery’.”<br />

Bonner’s death necessitated<br />

his replacement in the crew;<br />

Scott chose a strong and skilled<br />

Irish seaman by the name of<br />

Thomas Crean, who would go<br />

on to play significant roles in<br />

both Scott’s ill-fated 1910 voyage<br />

aboard the Terra Nova and<br />

Shackleton’s Imperial Trans-<br />

Antarctic Expedition aboard the<br />

Endurance, which resulted in<br />

one of the most epic Antarctic<br />

survival journey’s of all time.<br />

20 <strong>Bay</strong> <strong>Harbour</strong> News Wednesday <strong>August</strong> 2 2<strong>02</strong>3<br />

Moving with the times reaps success<br />

IT SEEMS such a long time<br />

ago now, but Trevor Crowe<br />

Motors/CroweSport was once<br />

Christchurch’s Skoda dealership.<br />

I had a short chat with Crowe<br />

recently, and was reminded of<br />

the pioneering development he<br />

carried out with some Skoda<br />

models – turbocharging the 120L<br />

for road use and stuffing a big V8<br />

into another as a rally car.<br />

Times have changed, and<br />

during the early 90s there was a<br />

complete change of direction for<br />

Skoda – Czechoslovakia<br />

split into the Czech Republic<br />

and Slovenia, and Volkswagen<br />

began a partnership with Skoda<br />

–eventually buying into the<br />

brand.<br />

In the years since Crowe<br />

relinquished Skoda in favour<br />

of Subaru, Skoda is now sold in<br />

Christchurch through the Miles<br />

Group, and it’s fair to say Skoda<br />

is now a force to be reckoned<br />

with in the global car market. Its<br />

platforms, engines, components<br />

and designs have much in<br />

common with Volkswagen<br />

product and that has to be a good<br />

thing, development costs are<br />

lower and build quality is high.<br />

Today, Skoda is very much on<br />

a roll, there is a wealth of models,<br />

the brand is marketed buoyantly<br />

PRICE-FRIENDLY: An efficient engine means there is no<br />

clean car programme penalty.<br />

SKODA KAROQ STYLE: The popular sport utility vehicle gets about its business with urgency.<br />

in New Zealand, and at dealer<br />

level there is a lot of passion for<br />

the product.<br />

This evaluation focuses on the<br />

Karoq, a mid-size sport utility<br />

vehicle that has just undergone a<br />

major facelift for 2<strong>02</strong>3. There is<br />

a new grille, new headlights and<br />

cosmetic enhancements both<br />

inside and out.<br />

The Karoq is popular here and,<br />

as a consequence, it is available<br />

with plenty of choice, there are<br />

three price-friendly variants –<br />

Ambition at $45,990, Style at<br />

$51,990 and Sportline at $63,990.<br />

The evaluation car was the midspec<br />

Style, whereas the Sportline<br />

adds a 2-litre engine and fourwheel-drive;<br />

the two entry-level<br />

modelsare front wheel-drive only<br />

and have a 1.4-litre turbocharged<br />

four-cylinder petrol engine.<br />

The latter is much the<br />

European standard with strong<br />

mid-range torque (250Nm from<br />

1500rpm to 3500rpm), and a<br />

low point of peak power (110kW<br />

at 5000rpm). Together, these<br />

figures combine to produce<br />

strong acceleration and worthy<br />

maximum speed. Skoda claims<br />

a 9.2sec standstill to 100km/h<br />

acceleration time and a top end<br />

of 201km/h.<br />

Figures aside, it is in the dayto-day<br />

commute that you really<br />

appreciate the quality of this<br />

engine, it gets about its business<br />

with urgency, yet is unflustered<br />

and quiet. It responds with<br />

vibrancy and is instant in its<br />

delivery, a lot of that is to do with<br />

the quick shifting eight-speed<br />

automatic and clever matching<br />

between the engine and<br />

transmission ratios.<br />

I took the test car on a twisty<br />

high country challenge, it reacts<br />

positively to steering input and<br />

has solid body balance. Grip in<br />

the first instance is supplied by<br />

Michelin tyres (215/50 x 18in),<br />

while they aren’t a performance<br />

tyre, they do have high grip<br />

qualities and contribute to a high<br />

degree of handling control.<br />

The Karoq is also an adept<br />

highway cruiser, it is whisper<br />

quiet at speed, and provides all<br />

occupants with a comfortable<br />

ride. The suspension is a fully<br />

independent front-strut/rear<br />

multiple link system which has<br />

spring and damper rates only<br />

moderately firmed. The result<br />

is a well-cushioned ride, and<br />

one which isn’t affected by body<br />

movement in a corner.<br />

While the Karoq can be seen as<br />

a purposeful all-rounder, one of<br />

its greatest claims to fame is that<br />

• Price – Skoda Karoq Style,<br />

$51,990<br />

• Dimensions – Length,<br />

4390mm; width,<br />

2<strong>02</strong>5mm; height, 1603mm<br />

• Configuration – Fourcylinder,<br />

front-wheeldrive,<br />

1395cc, 110kW,<br />

250Nm, eight-speed<br />

automatic.<br />

• Performance – 0-100km/<br />

h, 9.2sec<br />

• Fuel usage – 7.2l/100km<br />

of its fuel consumption, or should<br />

I say, lack of consumption. That’s<br />

the beauty of European engines,<br />

those that come out of the VW<br />

group’s factories are high on<br />

efficiency and low on emissions.<br />

The end result is a 7.2-litre<br />

per 100km combined cycle<br />

average fuel usage claim.<br />

The consumption readout<br />

reinforced that during my time<br />

in the test car. It was constantly<br />

showing around 7.8l/100km<br />

with an instantaneous figure of<br />

4.8l/100km at the legal limit, the<br />

engine turning over leisurely at<br />

just 1700rpm.<br />

The Karoq is no pretender in<br />

the SUV market, it shares all of<br />

the ingredients that make family<br />

wagons the popular choice today.<br />

For its price it comes with a<br />

healthy trim level, major features<br />

include push-button ignition,<br />

cruise control, electric tailgate,<br />

paddle gear shifters and touch<br />

screen display, and a multitude<br />

of safety systems that count<br />

towards a five-star Euro NCAP<br />

rating.<br />

I’d be happy with just the midspec<br />

Karoq, or even the entrylevel<br />

model, the cloth seats are<br />

certainly the way to go as far as<br />

I’m concerned, they just feel right<br />

to be in. What I also like about<br />

the Karoq is its practicality. It is a<br />

compact car at just 4.4m,<br />

but it has good space inside<br />

and useful load space. Bear in<br />

mind as well, there are many<br />

little features that make Skoda<br />

stand out as a car maker, they<br />

don’t stand out at first, but once<br />

familiar with the car you’ll<br />

appreciate them.<br />

For all of its clever kit and<br />

efficient technology, the Karoq<br />

doesn’t qualify for a New<br />

Zealand Government clean car<br />

discount. But the good news is<br />

that it won’t cost you a penalty,<br />

both engines and all models<br />

are fee neutral. I’m also reliably<br />

informed that there is a healthy<br />

supply of all Skoda models.<br />
