MEMORIALS

ROLL OF HONOUR FOR HAWKES BAY AIRMEN.

Our list of names has the Hawkes Bay district where the Roll of Honour person was born, or if not born here, where his parents moved to Hawkes Bay, where he attended school and found employment here before going to war. If this was the case the district is noted in brackets.

SERVICE PERSONNEL
  • Since 2002, we have been recording the experiences of WW2 Airforce personnel, (air & ground crews), from around our area. Sadly, some have passed-away, so we are moving on to gather more personal stories as names are passed on to our group.

  • We originally set out to cover the Hawkes Bay region only, (i.e. profiles of air force personnel who have either originated from or have settled in HB). We are beginning to receive info and photos of ex-air force personnel from out of the region. Some of these contributions are difficult to reject. We have therefore created a special "COMRADES" section.

  • WITH THE RETURN OF THE UNKNOWN WARRIOR, WE FELT IT WAS AN APPROPRIATE TIME TO LIST ALL THE R N Z A F PERSONNEL WHO HAVE NO KNOWN GRAVES IN THE WESTERN DESERT AREA OF OPERATIONS WW2 AND NOW LISTED ON THE ALAMEIN MEMORIAL.
