FROM CHRISTCHURCH TO OIL SPILLAGE CLEAN UP – BRADLEY JAMES IS HEADING TO TAURANGA
Bradley James, soldier in the New Zealand army, is now relieved of duties in Christchurch’s clean up and rebuild efforts and is now heading to Tauranga, Mt Maunganui to help clean up an oil spillage spectacle in between Tauranga’s coastline and Motiti Island the famed habitat of the rare tuatara.
Brad’s plane tickets North, to the top of New Zealand, will have to wait as will his best friends and whanau (family). He won’t get to see in the Rugby World Cup final either, on his ancestral whenua, in his second city, Auckland. In fact, Brad could be in Tauranga for weeks. :)
Whether it be on land or ocean or in the air, isn’t the life of a soldier so varied and interesting?
