|Hubert Atticus Taylor, Army|
serving in Fiji Islands
He met his wife Marguerite Enright through a friend in 1952… they married June 6, 1953… together Hubert and Marge had 3 children… John Grant (named for both of his grandfathers) Monica Ann (Marge always said if she had a girl, she would name her this) and Mary Lucinda (named for Marge’s sister and Hubert’s sister). Hubert was the first of the Taylor children to pass away at the age of 60.

|Poem composed by Hubert and sent |
to his wife during war
Note: "Bula" (pronounced boolah) is the Fijian word for hello. It is as significant for Fiji as "aloha" is to Hawaii.
This poem, typed as seen above by Hubert, is in the possession of Hubert's daughter, Monica, still in the envelope addressed to her mom.
