  • Notes 
    • In an e-mail from Susan Little she writes of Max: "He built radios as a boy and would tune into the Coconut Grove in L. A. He later became a Radio mechanic and then managed Columbus Radio in Nelson. He loved gardening espesciallly vegetables, built wooden rocking horses and dolls house furniture, and he also played the violin . He had a lovely relationship with his granddaughters and at eighty went to Japan to visit Rebecca who was working there and apparently was a real hit with the ladies! He enjoyed life and was described as a dignified witty man, with a gutsy nature and the Pamment sense of humour. One family story is of the time he was delivering bread inthe Kumara district and was driving too fast ending up in a pond on the Kumara straight. A local lady saw his plight and went to the bakery to tell Dan's grandfather (John James Pamment - "Jack"). Jack went to the pond to see his brother standing in the pond with loaves of bread floating all around but no sign of the bread van. "Where's the van ?"asked Jack "I'm standing on it !" came back the reply
