I only got to know Ben through my Brother Lahui's Book (Nameless Warriers) but he was so vibrant in the pages that I feel a sadness and loss at his passing - a truly great man and a shining light to all - God has called you to his side, rest in peace

My father, Alan Hooper, thought a great deal of Ben. Their friendship over so many years was one of the lasting good things to come out of the PIB.

I grew up on stories of the PIB and of the things that brought back joyful memories Sadly, Alan has joined Ben. He passed away today - 16 January 2014 - at the age of 95 years.

The state funeral for Ben is fitting. The men of the PIB deserve all the credit due to them and their acts and their characters should not be forgotten.

Our thoughts are with you and your family, Paul - KJ

God Bless Ben Moide and men and women like him who served their country with distiction. May his soul rest in God's eternal peace!
