    This photo was part of a collection owned by Charles Wooster (1847-1940). The two men corresponded and Charles repeatedly referred to William Henry Worster/Wooster as his "cousin".
    Was this just banter between two friends who happened to have similar/same surnames or is there a real connection here which we have thus far failed to spot?

    The above is a recent photograph two veterans of the Maori war, viz. Mr. G. H. Robinson, of South Head. Sydney (left) and Mr. Charles Wooster, of Nabiac (right). The former is 86 years of age and the latter 90 years. They enlisted in the Sydney contingent in 1862 and fought through the whole of the campaign. It is believed that they are the only survivors of the second Waikato regiment. Mr. Wooster was a prisoner of war under Te Coote and was taken to the head of the Wipa River, just above Peronga. In spite of his 90 years Mr. Wooster is in good health and retains all his faculties.
