The topic is a Tattoo on the back bearing the words of Robert Burns written in 1793 which
numerous people will believe is still quite valid these days.

&quotSuch a parcel of Rogues in a nation&quot

Just about sums up my view of Democracy today.

I identified a trio of horrifying plastic rabbits at Value Village, and picked them up for use in a feasible Halloween show. There have been three of the horrible wee beasties, every single with red-rimmed eyes and white flocking, one bearing a blue ink tattoo on its underside reading &quotEaster 1980.&quot We believe that may possibly be the name of its hideous dark lord.

Grimsby Trawler Leicestershire-The Orkney Image Library
Bear Tattoos

Image by mrrobertwade (wadey)
Jónleif Joensen &quotOn the 6th February 1938, the trawler ‘Hampshire’ sailed into Grimsby docks with its cargo of six black coffins bearing the bodies of those identified. It was Sunday evening. All the other ships in the estuary held back so that the ‘Hampshire’ would be 1st via the lock gates. Crowds of close friends and relatives stood on the quayside awaiting its arrival. It must have been an extremely tragic sight.

My wonderful grandfather, his remaining three sons and two other male relatives went on board to unload the coffins. They have been placed in the hearses to be taken to the Bethel Missions, the Fishermen’s Chapel, in Tiverton Street.

Alfred Evans was from 1 of the very best identified and extensively respected fishing families in the town. On a cold winters evening the streets were lined with hundreds of people, from the Dock Roads to The Mission, as the cortege created its way in silence.

Men and women paid their last respects at the mission for the duration of the next two days. On the day of the funeral the streets had been lined six deep with mourners.

The bodies were interred at Scartho Road Cemetery.&quot

The Instances, Tuesday, Feb 01, 1938 pg. 14
1 of the six bodies washed ashore on the Orkney Islands throughout the week-end was identified yesterday, and there now seems tiny doubt that they are all from the trawler Leicestershire, of Grimsby. The number on part of a wireless set washed up with the bodies had led to its becoming identified as portion of the gear of the trawler, which should have returned to port final night.
The vessel set out for the fishing grounds on January 7, and the final heard of her was at 1.44 a.m. on Friday, when she was in touch with Wick Radio Station and reported her position as 30 miles north-west of Sule Skerry, a desolate island in the Orkney group.
The physique identified was that of Harold Burkitt, a trimmer. He was identified by his mother, who stated that her son had on a single arm the tattoo marks of a swallow holding a letter in its beak and on the other arm a heart with the letter “M,” which was the initial letter of the name Muriel. Burkitt was 23.
The fifth and sixth bodies had been washed ashore yesterday on the Orkney island of Hoy. A single has tattooed on the left forearm a dagger and serpent. A cotton kitbag which has come ashore bears the initials “L.E.S.”
It was stated at Grimsby final night that the names of the Leicestershire’s crew are:-
A. Evans, skipper G. Neslin, mate C. Slater, very first engineer R. Holloway, second engineer A. Booth, third engineer N. Revell, H. Byron, J. Connelly, H. Millor, deckhands Harold Burkitt and A. Miller, trimmers A. Blyth, steward H. Sywords and H. Lancaster, firemen and R. Mortland, wireless operator.

Lore and History
of the
South Island Maori
W. A. Taylor 1952

Leaving Old Waikouaiti or modern day Karitane we pass south. Okai hau is the outlet to the sea of the Omimi Greek. The complete name of the website of the Omimi railway station is Te Mimi e te haki. The place of the Seacliff Mental Hospital is Turau aruhe. Waikoko is the Seacliff Creek. Potaerua represents the bush at Seacliff and the bight on the coastline towards Omimi is Rau-one. Warrington, the aristocratic weekend resort, bears the name of a renowned greenstone weapon Aka hau. Whaitiri-paku was the name of an old native village at what we now get in touch with Evansdale. The Evansdale Stream beneath its Kilmog branch, was an eeling location named Wai moi (sour water). The streams entering Blueskin Bay travelling south have been the Totara, Waiputi and Waitete (the latter erroneously spelt Waitati). Waitete signifies &quotbubbling water&quot, and no 1 who has lived alongside its course would query the translation as becoming truly descriptive.
The Orokonui Stream drains the northern slopes of Mount Mopariui getting into the mouth of the Waitete not far away from the Orokonui Mental Hospital. Blueskin was the name of Waitete in the early days. The early settlers named it such right after a nicely-tattooed Maori known as Te Hikututu, whose nickname was Blueskin.
A Ngai Tahu chief named Tutakahikura visiting Southland, coveted the wives of a Ngati Mamoe chief named Tutemakeho when the latter chief was away foraging, and abducted the girls. A chase from Southland resulted, and Tutemakeho fortunately caught up with the abductor at Pae Kohu (location of frogs) or Green Hill on the divide amongst the Silverstream and the coastal valleys. It was decided by the warriors to fight the matter out in gladiator fashion at Waitete. Tu te makaho won back his wives, taking them back to Otaupiri. A leaderless hapu of the Ngai Tahu returned to Canterbury.
Around 12 miles from Dunedin is Purakaunui page 120wrongly spelt Purakanui, which boasts a large native reserve, and its native inhabitants, who originally hailed from Kaiapoi, are proud of the fact that they are descendants of Ngai Tahu, who had been there lengthy prior to the fall of Kaiapohia, and are not begotten of refugee stock. Away back about the year 1750A.D. the War God Tu controlled the lives of the inhabitants of Purakaunui. Three cousins of chief rank but with no trace of loved ones affection kept the Ngai Tahu Tribe in almost an unbroken state of strife. Their names were Moki II, Taoka and Te Wera. Te Wera of Huriawa Pa at Old Waikouaiti dwelt for a time at Pukekura Pa at Otakou Heads. When there the paramount chief Tu ki taha rangi died, also Moki II’s son. Te Wera was accused of practising makutu (wizardry) on his kinsfolk and killing them. Te Wera fled away to Purakaunui where Te Rehu, his sister’s husband held sway. Moki II was not to be outmatched so he sent a surprise war party to Purakaunui kainga beneath the chief Kapo. The house of the chiefs was surrounded and most of the inmates slain, including a chief named Patuki. Te Rehu and Te Wera produced a miraculous escape, certainly a wailing for their decease had commenced at Huriawa when they arrived. Safe back in his fortress Te Wera waited and gathered together his warriors. He then set out for Pukekura on which he exacted full vengeance.
Taoka took up the Pukekura cause and besieged Te Wera at Huriawa. He failed to capture that pa, so he turned his consideration later to Mapou tahi on Goat Island Peninsula where the railway skirts the Blueskin Cliffs near the tunnel. When Taoha arrived at Mapoutahi in mid-winter, his scouts discovered the narrow neck of land which gave access to the pa properly guarded. 1 exceptionally wild night, nonetheless, the sentries had been withdrawn, and dummies place in their spot. The ruse worked until Taoka went forth and did scouting for himself. He found the correct position and Mapou tohi Pa was stormed. Only a handful of persons escaped by swimming and scaling the vine ladders on the Blueskin Cliffs which had been utilised for bird nesting.
The name for Goat Island is Mata awhe awhe (dead gathered in a heap), and its isthmus is referred to as soon after Pakihaukea, its unfortunate defender. The portion of the Blueskin Cliffs nearest to Waitati is Wata awa awa (edge of the valley). The bay east of the peninsula is Paua nui (massive ear shell fish). On October 22nd, 1930, Goat Island Peninsula, location 4 acres, was vested as a scenic reserve beneath the handle of the Otago University. Why the Maori men and women were not favoured with possession is not clear.
Close to Mapou tahi the canoe of Waiti named Tau a Tara-whata was wrecked a handful of centuries ago. Mihiwaka (lament for a canoe) is the hill which separates the Purakaunui Valley page break

Mrs Mere Harper—Old Waikouaiti
page 121 from Otago Harbour. Aorangi (light of heaven) is the hill across Purakaunui Bay close to the web site of the old whaling station. Opeke is the foot of Foote’s Greek. Ko te wai a pukuraku is a tiny watercourse near the sand drift to the railway line. Haereoa, Teoti Wahie and Noah had been the top guys at Purakaunui in the forties. The present native inhabitants of the reserve are half-castes, getting descendants of the old whalers. The Purakaunui Reserve was set aside in pursuance of the infamous Kemp Deed.
Near Purakaunui is Long Beach, recognized as Whare wera wera, which contains a native reserve of a few hundred acres. The original trustees of this poor top quality reserve were Tamati Tiko, Te Ati Poroki, Hipa Porekaha, Riki Tuete and Haereroa. The land is of sandy nature, with, however, miniature lagoons via which a extremely wandering stream passes, and in the days when the Piorakaunui district as soon as held a large native population, supplied good eeling locations. There is no doubt that the Maoris living between Purakaunui and Otago Heads suffered severely from European illnesses during the period sealing ships have been frequenting the coast. The cold-water remedy by the tohungas of influenza and measles could only outcome in one particular way—death.
South of Longbeach is Murdering Beach which should be known by its Maori name of Whare ake ake. On December 24th, 1817, a Tasmanian brig named the Sophia, commanded by Captain Kelly, anchored there to trade with the Maoris. Nonetheless a man named Tucker was recognised as a person who at Riverton traded in dried Maori heads. Such sacrilege fairly rightly brought down on the pakahas the anger of the Maoris. Tucker fell to the blow of a mere wielded by Te Matahaere, as did two or three other folks. The remaining boatsmen returned to the ship for reinforcements, and in the skirmish the Maoris had been defeated, and prisoners taken back to the Sophia, which includes the chief Korako, a progenitor of the Taiaroa family members. The Maoris rallied below the chief Tukarekare, and in canoes attacked the ship, but without accomplishment. Korako rejoined his friends by jumping overboard to the canoes. The Europeans then killed their other prisoners, and sailed away to Otakou Heads where they destroyed the native village.
The bay south of Whare ake ake is named Kaikai right after a Ngati Mamoe man dwelling there in a cave in the early days. The proper name is Takeratawhai. The cave belonging to Kaikai is now employed as a sheep pen. A heavy &quottapu&quot rested on Murdering Beach until it was lifted by a North Island tohunga at the request of the Purakaunui Maoris. The three bays south of Purakaunui have been the content hunting-grounds of curio collectors, alas numerous not venerating the burial-places. It has been estimated that 3½ tons of worked greenstone has been web page 122recovered. In 1912 a large element of this collection passed to British and American museums.
In 1926 a curious adze hogbacked with a really narrow cutting edge was found. Mr Washbourne Hunter was the land owner in the early days, and in the course of his time 400 curios have been discovered. Two dozen greenstone tikis have been discovered at Whare ake ake. The late Mr Murray Thomson, who had a weekend property at Murdering Beach, was an enthusiastic collector, and he assisted greatly the archaeological section of the Otago Institute in the course of a fortnight of March 1935, in cross trenching, digging and browsing every nook and corner of Kaikai, Murdering and Longbeach, and the possibility of obtaining a very good cache of curios is now extremely remote. Even though a &quotgreen-stone workers’ factory&quot the meres found have invariably been executed in slaty stone.
When Edward Shortland visited Purakaunui in October 1843, the Maori population had dwindled to 32 persons. Pukai-a-te-ao and Kaitipu of the Huirapa hapu had succeeded Urukino in the leadership. When Mantell created his census of Purakaunui in connection with the sale of the Ngai Tahu Block the inhabitants numbered 46. The majority of the individuals belonged to the Ngai tuna hapu. The Huirapa hapu (mainly females) counted 8 and the Ngati Tuahuriri two persons. The handful of Maoris who now occupy Purakaunui are half-caste descendants of whalers. The settlement is now a popular Dunedin weekend resort. The tiny fenced-in cemetery on the Purakaunui Spit alone reminds the visitor of the Maori backgroundOld Waikouaiti and Purakaunui are usually by-passed by motorists journeying to Dunedin who travel on the Major Road. The Principal Road from modern day Waikouaiti to Waitati crosses over the properly-known Kilmog Hill, Kilmog getting a corruption of the Maori name of the plant Kirimoko identified to botanists as Septospermum ericoides, which grows profusely in the locality.
