At the going down of the sun and in the morning, We will remember them

At 11:00 on 11th November, people across the world stop what they are doing and fall silent for 2 minutes to remember those who gave their lives in conflict so that we may live in freedom.

Hundreds of thousands of British, Commonwealth and Empire service personnel were killed during the second world war. Making up this number were 36 men of 488(NZ) Squadron.

Today, as we remember the sacrifices made, let us take a minute to specifically remember the British and New Zealand men of this Squadron who gave their lives for our tomorrow.

The Roll of Honour records the names of the members of the Squadron who had already given their lives between the start of Broody’s tour in September and Armistace Day 1943
