Mr A. P. Boyle     Obituary
Alistair Patrick Boyle, who has died in a London hospital at the age of 67 after a stroke, was typical of a certain type of New Zealand farmer or "runholder" which as long furnished much of the backbone of that's country's tradition and economy. His father, a cousin of that Earl of Glasgow who was Governor of New Zealand from 1892 to 1897, settled in Canterbury in 1870, and married a Studholme from Waimate, South Canterbury - another of the many families which over the years have straddled both New Zealand and the Old Country, furnishing a distinguished Conservative member of Parliament at Westminster. "Paddy" Boyle's elder brother, though born and educated in New Zealand, served for many years in the Royal Navy, including two periods in the Royal Yacht, and seeing active service in the Battle of Jutland.
Boyle's father, besides being a successful farmer, was the founder of Pyne, Gould & Guinness, the leading stock and station agents in Canterbury, of which Boyle himself was still a director at the time of his death. When the war broke out in 1939, although in his middle thirties, he immediately enlisted and served for some months in the ranks before being commissioned in Cairo. He served in the same battalion as the redoubtable Charles Upham, his friend and neighbour in Canterbury and the only living holder of the VC and Bar. Wounded and captured in the Western Desert he made a remarkable escape, despite his broken jaw, when from his bed in a German field hospital he spotted a German driver parking his truck some fifty yards away. With a few companions, he possessed himself of the truck, and drove resolutely eastwards until they reached ten British lines. Recovered from his wounds, her served in North Africa and Italy until hostilities ended, being twice mentioned in dispatches.
In his native Canterbury, Boyle was a much-loved figure, whether in his club in Christchurch, or on the race-course, at country sales or in the house he built for himself at Cloverfield, near Oxford where, among other things, he was a pillar of the church.

Obituary. Sir John Acland
He was born on January 18, 1904, the son of the late Colonel Hugh Acland, a Christchurch doctor, and nephew of Mr H. D. Acland, an original member of the Wool Council which was responsible for New Zealand's part in the creation of the IWS in 1937. His grandfather, Mr J. B.A. Acland took up the 115,000 acre Mount Peel station in Canterbury in 1856, having arrived in New Zealand from Devon a few years previously.
    The British side of the family became involved with educational affairs and politics from the 17th century and at least 10 generations served in the House of Commons.
    Educated at Christ's College, Christchurch, Acland learned farming the hard way as a stockman, stock agent, station hand and drover in New Zealand and Australia. He took over sole management of Mount Peel in 1953, served in local government for many years, was a justice of the peace and a lay reader in the Anglican Church.
    From 1942 to 1945 he was a member of the New Zealand Parliament for the Temuka district and became a member of the Wool Board in 1947. He was elected deputy chairman in 1956 and chairman in 1960 when he was also elected vice-chairman of the IWS. He was created KBE in 1968. Ill-health forced him to retire from the Board in 1972.
    He is survived by his wife Kit - herself from a prominent Hawkes Bay farming family and sister of the former New Zealand Meat Board chairman, Sir John Ormond - three sons and three daughters. Two of the sons are managing Mount Peel station.
