The other three pictures on this page are of the much-travelled family of Mr and Mrs Ernie Page, Commercial Street, Takaka. The one at top left shows Mr and Mrs Page (left) with their daughter Jayne and her Canadian husband, Arnold ("Buzz") Busslinger. They were in Australia drilling for oil, then to Canada and the United States on leave. Now, they're at Brunei where "Buzz" is in charge of a drilling rig. Another son, Kerry, top right, has an unusual teaching position. He is teaching the children of the American staff of a copper mine high in the Andes, Peru. He's been in Peru now for two years. Above is Mr Page saying goodbye to son Mark who is working at Goldsworthy, Western Australia, at an iron ore plant. Whoops' Nearly forgot to mention Brett and Craig, sons of Jayne and "Buzz" (top left).


A year ago, David and Christine Keay left Nelson on their honeymoon. Quite recently, they again left Nelson, but this time for overseas. David (Lieutenant Keay), of the Royal New Zealand Infantry, has left for Vietnam and Christine travelled on to Singapore where she will stay while David is in Vietnam. They spent David's final leave in Nelson with Christine's mother, Mrs M. Marchbanks, 11 Fifeshire Crescent.
