He’s won a $1000 bank account plus $1000 for his school. Now Kaitaia College student Anaru Williams could soon be heading to Gallipoli after winning the regional final of the prestigious National Bank RSA Cyril Bassett VC Speech Compe- tition. Anaru goes to Wellington for the national final on April 5, which brings with it the chance to travel to Gallipoli for the 2012 Anzac Day commemorations. RSA district president Darcy Bailey says the RSA was impressed at students’ level of interest in the compe- tition. ‘‘Anaru presented an excel- lent speech, demonstrating a strong understanding of the experience of New Zealanders at war. If he is lucky enough to win the national final the trip to Gallipoli will be an experi- ence he will never forget.’’ National Bank regional manager Glen Hardam sent congratulations to Anaru for a wonderful speech and wished him all the best for the national final in Wellington. ‘‘The National Bank is delighted to support this important speech competition because we know how much our history means to young and old New Zealanders. The bank has been in New Zealand since the early 1870s and Cyril Bassett VC is one of hun- dreds of our staff who served our country overseas,’’ Mr Hardam says. Cyril Bassett was the only New Zealander to receive a VC at Gallipoli. He worked at the National Bank for his entire working life, from 1908 until his retirement in 1952. He received his VC for bravery as a member of the New Zealand Divisional Signals Company. The winner of the national final on April 5 will win a further $1000 spending money and a laptop and digital cam- era to record their experiences at Gallipoli. LETTER P9 petition Onpage9weare promoting our citizens initiated referendum to restore Crown ownership of New Zealand’s foreshore and seabed. We are appealing to all readers to sign the petition and send it in to us. Running a CIR is extremely difficult as the 320,000 signatures that are needed is an enormous hurdle. But if everyone who reads our advertisement responds, we would have a very good chance of success. Dr Muriel Newman CIR Petitioner Whangarei Man found dead Police say 55-year-old Gary Maxwell Leadley was found dead at a Mangonui address last week. They are not seeking anyone else in relation to the man’s death and the matter has been referred to the coroner. Investigations into the clan lab that was dis- covered at the address are continuing. Police described the lab, used to manufacture metham- phetamine, as signifi- cant. The Auckland Clan Lab team have com- pleted an examination. Hat lady sure can turn the heads Beer hat: If you want to get a-head, get a hat. Or, to corrupt a well-known phrase, ‘‘It’s not over ‘til the hat lady sings’’. Lorna Rae Green of Kaikohe was certainly in a light mood when she constructed this fine headgear especially for an AgeWell social event earlier this year. Lorna’s companions in ‘‘style crime’’ urged her to get it on record before consigning it to recycling heaven.
