This story comes from an old edition of the Daily Telegraph.
People here love to tell the wartime story of a New Zealand Officer somewhat inflamed with liquor who asked a Taxi Driver to take him home to the “G.P.H”
“G.P.H” is the local name for the Grand Pacific Hotel, but the taxi-driver thought he said “G.H” the local name for Government House.
The fuddled officer staggered into Government House, felt his way upstairs. The wife of the Governor found him taking a bath and mumbling about the lack of towels.
She showed him to a bedroom and arranged a car to return him to camp early next morning.
