From Morning Report, 7:48 am on 14 August 2018

The son of rugby legend, George Nepia, is one of a number of New Zealand servicemen whose remains will be returned to this country next week. Twenty-eight Defence Force personnel, who died while serving in Malaysia, Singapore and Vietnam and were buried overseas have been exhumed and will be returned to their families at a ceremony at Auckland Airport on Tuesday. The remains of a three-month old boy, who died of an illness in Malaysia, while his father served there in 1963, will also be returned.
