Sergeant John Duffin (c.1832-12 Dec 1911). There is a photo of him in the Auckland Library Heritage Images online titled ' DEATH OF A TARANAKI VETERAN: THE LATE SERGT-MAJOR DUFFIN.' He was a soldier but later joined the police force and was working in New Plymouth by 1865. He retired sometime in or after 1898.
