Wives Remember Their Heroes

It was touching to witness members of the public gather at Sukanaivalu Barrack in Labasa yesterday to pay tribute to fallen comrades during Remembrance Day commemoration.

Amongst the crowd was an emotional, 76-year-old Sofia Luva who remembered her late husband, Qalo Enesi.

Originally from Vanuabalavu, Lau, Ms Luva said, “My husband was among the troop that was led into battle in Malaya and when he returned he still lived like a soldier,” Ms Luva said.

“He would say that time is time and he wouldn’t ever want to be late for anything. In days like today, I happen to remember him a lot and I am usually sad because I miss him. I am proud of my husband and what he has accomplished for Fiji and at the same time I am praying for my grandson who is following after his grandfather’s footsteps in the Fiji Navy.”

Another widow, Letila Dibuna Tukuca, wife of the late Corporal Epeli Tukuca said Remembrance Day brought Ex-servicemen’s wives together.

“We talk about our life experiences as wives of Ex-servicemen and we cherish past memories of our husbands. I will always remember my husband as a good person who served his country well,” she said.
