Hi I am trying to find relatives of Stanley Hoby who live in the Taranaki area. He attended the school I teach at and the children are trying to track relatives of the 11 ex pupils of our school who died in WW1 so that we can invite them to our ANZAC service on April 24 which will be honouring those 11 men. Thank you
