     Walter Albert Greathead was born on 13 May 1905 in Carterton, New Zealand.2,3,4 He was the son of George Greathead and Francisca Magdelene Shutkowski. Walter was sent to live with an Aunt and Uncle after his mothers death. It was from their house that he ran away to sea working as a stoker on a ship that took him to Australia. It seemed to me he lead a very hard and rough life there, working as a boxer in the tent shows for quite some time. He was also a cattle station Cook as well, there he learned to make bread.5,6 He married Bettie Louise Holland in 1932 in New Zealand.2,3,7 Walter died on 23 January 1984 in Wellington, New Zealand, aged 78.2,8,1 Walter was buried on 25 January 1984 in Karori Crematorium, Karori, Wellington, New Zealand.1
