Biographical information

  • Joan Apperley was attached to the Auxiliary Transport service (ATS)

    Joan Apperley is quoted in the Auckland War Memorial Museum exhibition 'Victory in Europe' of 'Scars on Heart', We came back with the Maori Battlion on the 'Dominion Monarch'. When we got into Wellington harbour it was a beautiful bright day and the wharves packed with people. What struck me was the bagpipes. There must have been two or three bands. I said, "God - you've got more bagpipes here than they have in Scotland." AWMM
