One of the early surf club members. Had an early bach on the dunes near the beach. His sister Ida married All Black Freddie Lucas and had our beloved Buddy. Famous for having guarded the remains of the “Body in the Burning Bach” and earned the nickname “The Ghoul” for this episode. He did not like this nickname and once threatened to sue me for telling the story. He established the store – now Blairs – beside the surf club. At the time the surf club was so pissed off none of the clubbies were allowed to buy anything there, so they used to give me and Toni money to go over and buy them ice creams. Eventually he went off to Australia.
