NZ 75 Squadron RAF

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 2:08 pm on 26 February 2014

When Robert Douglas 'Jock' Sommerville from the 75 NZ Squadron RAF died a few years ago, his son Simon was left with his Dad's logbook, medals, whistle and a lot of questions about his father's life during the Second World War. Like so many men of that era, Bob Sommerville didn't talk about the war. So Simon set out to find out more about his father's role in the War and the men he flew with. More than one thousand members of the 75 NZ Squadron lost their lives during the war. Simon has set up a website dedicated to finding out more about the men and their missions.
