  • Dennis was one of 17 "A/O's" from Course No. 9 at Ohakea in 1940 who embarked on the "Maunganui" November 8th, 1940 for service in the North Africa Campaign. I am preparing a write up about the 17 - which of the various Squadrons they were assigned to - their lives and war service - who survived and sadly who did not. I would love to hear from any family/extended family.
