Untitled[edit]

Sir is not normally included in names used in titles on wiki, as the period who received his knighthood or baronetcy will have been known for most of their life without it. See naming conventions. STÓD/ÉÍRE 04:12 Mar 25, 2003 (UTC)

I'm working at the State Services Commission in Wellington at present. There is a statue of Sir Keith Holyoake at the entrance. I have added some more of his decorations from the base. I'll put up a picture when I bring the camera in next time Dean

Excellent. Down the road from the SSC is the house Holyoake lived in for many years as PM, I can't remember the name of it exactly (It's next to the Fijian High Commission though). You could get a pic of that too. --Lholden 05:09, 8 January 2007 (UTC)
Ahhh cool. Is it the one on the corner? Or the one further along Pipitea St? I think the one further along is a historical building, I'll check why =) - Dean
Umm... the one on the corner is the Fijian High Commission, isn't it? There is a plaque on the wall outside the house. --Lholden 20:37, 10 January 2007 (UTC)

Services to NZ (Governer General and PM) [1] - Dean

Toolbox order[edit]

Is there any particular reason, besides the obvious chronological order, that the list of positions or functions does not feature the most important function (Gov-Gen'l of NZ) in the first place under the portrait?George Adam Horváth (talk) 09:31, 10 April 2008 (UTC)

Arms[edit]

Just added his coat of arms. I have the description to include in the box but can't input it right now. WIll do so within the next day or so. A1 Aardvark (talk) 06:16, 31 December 2009 (UTC)
