The youngest son of Mr and Mrs T. H. Berry, 30 Stanley Road, he was educated here, played in the Gisborne City Band, and took part in local amateur dramatic productions.

He is pictured with the famed negro jazzman, Louis Armstrong, one of the many international show celebrities who are featured in the book.
