RNZAF PV-1 Ventura - Solomans October 1944

Post by Uncleo1 » Sun Jun 26, 2016 11:01 pm

Hi all,

I am searching for any surviving people who served at Henderson Airbase in the Soloman Islands from August to October 1944.

The Royal New Zealand Airforce 1 Squadron (NZ 4561) PV-1 Ventura was lost whilst on an anti submarine exercise on 5 October 1944.

The wireless operator/air gunner was Leo James Comeskey (428082) was an uncle whose story I am writing for the family archives.

Of particular interest is pictures of 1 SQN PV-1 , especially NZ4561.and aircrews.

Hoping someone can help me.

Thank you
