Images from the Rededication Ceremony, 13 August 2005

Dame Silvia Cartwright unveils new plaques at the rededication of the Palmerston North Cenotaph, 11 am, 13 August 2005.

The two new plaques have been engraved with 84 WWI names not shown on the original main plaque, as well as names from WWII and other conflicts. The two smaller plaques, previously either side of the main list of names, have now been moved to above the stones at the front of the steps.

Greetings,

I am in the throes of writing up on the loss of Pilot Officer Douglas George KING NZ404378 RNZAF lost without trace on the night of 1/2 June 1942.

Did anyone know him or has a photograph of him please. Any information would be worthwhile.

This is not a book but just a write-up in case a family member is around and wants the information. This is the 51st aircraft of my 'Missing NZ Airmen' (M.A-51) series.
Thanks
Arthur.

What do you know?
