Five Royal Air Force war veterans are taking off on a final mission.
The men, aged in their 80s and 90s, weren’t able to join the official New Zealand veterans’ memorial trip to London, but are getting there thanks to a generous entrepreneur.
Founding director of Tax Management New Zealand, Ian Kuperus, says he was struck by the dedication of the Bomber Command crews during World War II.
He’s funding a trip for the five men and a support crew to see the Bomber Command memorial for themselves.
“So it’ll give the veterans an opportunity to lay their own wreaths and commemorate their comrades that have fallen.”
Mr Kuperus says they’ll leave at the end of next month and will be in London for two weeks.
