No longer forgotten: Special reunion for Gallipoli veteran's family

From Morning Report, 8:52 am on 22 May 2019

For just over a century, Corporal Willie Snelgrove has been buried at a Porirua cemetery, north of Wellington, after dying of Spanish flu in December 1918.

But his grave has never had a headstone, so his family has never known where he was laid to rest - until now.

RNZ defence reporter, Jonathan Mitchell, has the story.
