Hi Maggie
I dont know whether you have found the details of 75 (NZ) Sqn Associations Facebook and website but if you have a look on the link I created you should find them. I am sure both the UK and NZ contacts would welcome hearing from you (and Sgt Berrys family if you are still in contact). Wayne has been doing a good job of providing information I see and hes got much more experience on that side than I have.
If there is anything I can help with though please let me know.
Dee :D

One thing I seem to be missing in my search is more information on the Newmarket base where he was stationed. I know it was/is a race course but I have not found any pictures etc of it during the war years especially early 1943. Do you have any reference documents that might help ?

Thanks
