This photograph of Joe Marston (left) and George Fitzgerald was probably taken before Joe went off to serve overseas in World War I, in 1915. George also went to war in 1916, and was said to have come back a 'ruined man'.

In this photograph they pose with their pet ferrets, which were used for hunting rabbits.

Both men lived in the Feilding area. Joe lived at Aorangi most of his adult life and was a printer, working for 'The Feilding Star'.
