Stan Wemyss

The long career of Stan Wemyss ranged from South Pacific skirmishes to gleaming refrigerators and Māori legends. Winner of an MBE after getting caught up in combat in Bougainville as a National Film Unit cameraman, Wemyss later spent many years with commercials company Peach Wemyss. He also produced pioneering te reo TV drama Uenuku.

Wemyss closely documented combat action showing the gore and tragic reality of war, to the extent of being compelled to participate in the action. He was subsequently made an MBE for bravery.
