Raweyn Marcroft, Miss Waikato 1981.

Last weekend Kylee Tan, 22, was crowned Miss Hamilton and will go on to compete for the title of Queen of the World New Zealand, following in a long line of beauties to represent the region.

Back in 1981, it was Raweyn Marcroft's turn and here she is after being crowned Miss Waikato, and getting  a whopping big trophy.

She also won a trip to Australia, an evening gown, leather co-ordinates, shoes and cosmetics at the paegeant, which compered by Billy T James.

In 2002 Marcroft - who was married by then and took the name McLachlan - graduated from the New Zealand Police College in Porirua.  She's currently serving in Raglan.
