Good day.
During a brief spell on the East Coast of the North Island at a small town called Tolaga Bay I meet a chap in his late 50's who was shearing sheep at the time.
His name was Peter Lyon.
He lived in the deep South of the South Island,at a small town called Ohai which is 36 km North of Invercargirl.
I hope this is off use to you.
