Hi All,

I am writing to advise I have a photo of the grave of F/O Stanley Broadbent of the Royal New Zealand Air Force.

F/O Broadbent was killed in action on May 7th, 1944 when his 17 Squadron P-40 Kittyhawk (NZ3188) crashed during an attack on Japanese positions. He is now buried at the Bomana War Cemetery, Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea.

According to the Commonwealth War Graves Commission website, he was the "Son of Hilton Broadbent, and of Florence Broadbent (nee Watson), of Dannevirke, Hawke's Bay, New Zealand; husband of Peggy Broadbent, of Dannevirke."

If anyone would like a copy of this photo (digital) please feel free to E-Mail me.
