Leave a tribute or memory of
Lloyd Allan Trigg
My courageous grandfather. The father your little boys hardly knew... the dark outline of your face looking into a bassinet. The husband my grandmother lost...her only husband...no grave to kneel at. The brave and loyal men you took with you. The loss too great. Your wife and son's now gone. Gone.

Our early morning dawn;lift off Bathurst 'subs' a thorn
Flying Liberator long wings,the Atlantic we spawn.
"Lloyd officer Trigg" and my seven beside
Survey for 'Unterseeboot,' before they ripple a dive
We have gauged a sight;for there is one below
I'll drop down a swoop and foul them a foe!
Opening their fire rages straits intense
The tail now alight;our chances weakly immense.
I take a grasp,head bearing her once more
Planing the bow,openly the 'fins' door.
Low above the tower fifty feet or so
Out with the bombs;six charges all blow.
We crash dive to the stern,"our end" all liberty she burns
Among seven 'Schamong;' he captains a VC for I belong!

I visited New Zealand in 2001 and saw Flying Officer Trigg's exhibit/diorama at the RNZAF Museum.

Courage and determination beyond imagining. The qualities and strength of character that every parent should teach his/her children about.
I wish Lord Ashcroft could repatriate his Victoria Cross to New Zealand to be kept on display at the RNZAF Museum.
I never met my Great-Grandfather but I think he and his crew were brave men.

I never meet you!! Growing up I saw yr picture in my nana's lounge ( not knowing who you were) and under that I saw this German u boat (discovered that later...as to what it was) I had no understanding who u were. In the last 20yrs I now know more about you and what you and the rest of those brave men you had on fatal and brave mission you took.
I am so proud to be related to you!!! you are never forgotten...every time I go to the RSA I see you and wish I had known you!!!! u and yr crew are never forgotten.
Thank you for giving us this wonderful country u and yr crew fought for...New Zealand

My grandmother(Garvie) and my mother always spoke of Lenas brave deeds unfortunatly with the passing on of the older generation we have lost links to his remaining family members,it would be so nice to make contact with them so we can fill in the gaps.

The Grandfather I never had the privilege of knowing. Whom I'm so proud of for his bravery. You will never be forgotten because of this. I'm hoping you and Dad are finally reunited.
