    • William Knowles was the son of Ellen Knowles, of New Plymouth, Taranaki, New Zealand.

      Biographical details are found in an article about an embroidered silk memorial, a fragment from the parachute from the fatal, in the Review in 1974. The article includes a photograph of the silk. AWMM
    • William Leslie Knowles was born in New Plymouth on 24 December 1919 and on leaving school worked as a printer for the Taranaki Herald. In 1940 he enlisted with the Royal New Zealand Air Force and began his training. By February 1941 he had been promoted to Sergeant and was sent to the United Kingdom via Canada. His first operational posting was to No 106 Squadron based at Coningsby, Lincolnshire. On only his second operational flight the Hampden bomber he was pilot and captain of failed to return to base, with the loss of all crew on-board. The flight on 6 August 1941 took off to attack a target in Mannheim, Germany but crashed near Gendringen, Holland. William Knowles was buried in the Roman Catholic Cemetery, Gendringen, Holland. He was 21 years old. Public - Louise - Researcher - 22 July 2019 - West, J. (1995). Lest We Forget. New Plymouth: New Plymouth Boy’s High School Centennial Trust.
