Does Anybody know anything about “Joseph Wendell Boreham. He Died saving his comrades in an Avro Anson, on 19th October 1939.  I am researching this great man and his history and plan to make a video/presentation, in honour of him.


  1. I found out a great deal about this man. I have also made a short video to commemorate his life with. With the help of a friend of Mine, Dom.

  2. I have just started to do my family tree and Joseph is a relation of mine. Look forward to hearing anything more other than the snippet which was reported in the North Otago Times on the 14th June 1915
