Biographical information

Biographical information

Contribute ›
  • William Bagshaw and Margaret Bagshaw (nee Horton) of Patumahoe lost two adopted sons Frederick Barry Bagshaw (43602) and Douglas Frank Bagshaw (65052) in WW2. The boys were sons of Frank and Amy (nee Horton) Vickers and they were adopted by Amy's sister Margaret and her husband.

    Family information suggests that Douglas Bagshaw died as the result of an accident in a plane when he and a friend took up a plane and had to ditch at sea.

    In possession of the family are two silver discs of voice recordings made during the war and sent to Douglas and Frederick Bagshaw's only sister. These recordings have never been heard as no means was available to play them. Miss M.A. Bagshaw was their only family member surviving. AWMM
