Tutehounuku (Nuk) Korako is a National MP and before politics he had his own own travel company. One of tours he organised was Maori Battalion Hikoi Maumahara (Journey's of Remembrance) with veterans and whanau, taking them back to the battlefields and war cemeteries of North Africa including Egypt, Libya, Tunisia, Crete, Malta, Italy. He also did a combination of First and Second World War battle sites and war cemetery visits.
