Mongrel Mob members

In 1990 Dunedin Mongrel Mob members gather at the grave of fellow member Moanaroa Kidwell, who died of a drug overdose in 1986 aged 20. The mobster on the left pours him a beer. 'Skumdog' is a term for a fellow member. Moanaroa had been depatched just days before his death after several warnings for his abuse of hard drugs.
