    I used to have all his books, got them all signed at a meet and greet years ago.
    They seemed to have vanished in the great move of 2020 :-(
    Turns out my neighbour knows Charlie and featured in one of his stories es

    Yes I have thanks @Dundee. Working my way through it now.

    By the way, Charlie keeps talking about 'monowai' as a plant. What's this? Is it a North Island thing? A mate who is a botanist has no idea.

    unsure about the context of "Monowai" ...but it was an assault landing strip during D-Day

    I always understood it was the bush that grows beside the Manuka up the Ngaruroro
    Its green and about knee to waist high
    Having hunted all Charlie's old country at school the name stuck i use it to.
    Hopefully someone can tell us its proper name
    My Google couldn't
