Rex Edward Wood, crew of HMNZS Leander at Battle of Kolombangara (left)

Here we see Rex Edward Wood (on the left), one of the crew of HMNZS Leander at the battle of Kolombangara, (13 July 1943), where the cruiser was badly damaged and effectively knocked out of the war.

Many thanks to his son Kieron Wood for sending us this picture.
