Bobssen's upbring was a typical upbring in 1960's New Zealand although due to his father serving in the New Zealand Army Bobssen's Family moved around the north of Wellington a bit.

Bobssen as child also enjoyed fishing with his father either at [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Petone Petone] from the Bridge or Queens wharf in [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wellington Wellington].

Under Bobssen's Leadership the Kingdom of Zealandia Naval Service (KOZNS) had grown to become the largest and most organised military branch in the Kingdom of Zealandia.
