Young Aucklander Eddie Vazey died in World War Two. His family has just heard his voice for the first time since then. Twenty four year old Eddie was lost when HMS Neptune was sunk in the Mediterranean on December 19th, 1941. Only weeks before, The New Zealand Broadcasting Service Mobile Unit had visited Neptune to record Christmas messages from the kiwis aboard. Spectrum records the moment in 2012 when Eddie Vazey's niece and her three children hear his voice 71 years after his death.
