Biographical Notes

Part of boarding party mustered on deck on 24th November 1941; survived on one of the rafts in a group; picked up in approaching darkness; helped make shoes on Nishmaha; returned home just in time for Christmas 1941.

New research, in 2015, suggests he was on the last raft to be rescued by SS Nishmaha (see Rafts and Rescue).

Served in Navy until 1956. Died on 40th anniversary of Dunedin’s sinking; buried on 40th anniversary of rescue.
