Re: Young sailor drowned in New Plymouth

Hello from New Zealand, Our Mick sends me your magazine and I pass it on. With regard to the young lad off the British Monarch who drowned. I've done a bit of asking around and a lady at the Museum in New Plymouth was very helpful, but we needed a date. Our Mick never got back to me with one, but the lady in New Plymouth kept trying and lo and behold here it is. This is his death notice as it appeared in the Taranaki Herald.
