    Found these video interviews on the NZ on Screen website of Kiwi veterans of Bomber Command. The interviews go into their family history, their early lives, joining up and their service.

    James McQueen WOP/AG, shot down, interrogated by the Gestapo and held as a POW;

    Ditto. I have a great respect for Kiwi Veterans, not only because they crossed the world to fight the Nazis, but also because they fought with their guts.
