I am the eldest son of William Thomas Bowden (Bill) he was from Liverpool and served on H.M.N.Z.S. Gambia, he served in Radar I believe and served from 1943-45ish.
I am trying to find out all I can about his Navy Days, I only wish I had asked Dad more questions when I could. He was very fond of the New Zealanders and would sing to us four boys a Maori song that we can all still remember. (he was a bit of a -Crooner-) Have you any information or can offer any other places I could look. Dad joined the Navy in 1939ish he was 15 at the time born 20th March 1925.
Hope you can help
