Claude A. Buchanan

Although I was born in Syndey, I have lived in New Zealand since I was three. For the early part of my life, I lived in Dunedin, where I sang in St Paul's Cathedral from the age of 6 until 29.

I moved to Hamilton, where I met Robin Jean, my wife of 38 years.

Now I live in Auckland; about 30 minutes north of the city, overlooking the Kaipara River Valley. I sang in the Auckland cathedral choir for nearly 19 years.

I started and managed my own business in the food industry. The business was sold some 15 years ago.

I have two grown sons, and two grandsons, aged 11 and 8.

I like to travel and I am interested in Scottish Heraldry, in particular Clan Buchanan heraldry (see www.esd.co.nz/buchanan). I was recently elected a Fellow of the Society of Scottish Antiquaries; a great honour.
