Thanks for the info Phil - I now have that record to go with his service records.

However, I am still looking for any reference to the ship he was on when he was killed. The name "Slanto" doesn't come up in any list of ships. Any amount of re-spelling draws a blank. At this point I'm stumped.

According to this site these are the relevant Allied (British and Greek - no Australian or NZ losses) ships sunk during April 1941 -
