Over the course of WWII, approximately 140,000 New Zealanders were sent overseas
serve in the war. Many were sent to fight in huge battles, including the Battle of the
Atlantic that lasted for 2064 days (over 5 years)! The Battle of the Atlantic came to an
end in 1943, in large part due to the heroic efforts of people like Lloyd Trigg, a pilot
from New Zealand. He was awarded a special medal from the New Zealand Governmen
t for his bravery. It is called a Victoria Cross (‘VC’ for short). A total of 22 New
Zealanders have been awarded VCs.

  1. Hey there Maria, thanks for working so hard and completing another set of activities!

    I really like your story that you have written. It sounds like a very scary situation to be caught up in, especially if you are a nurse and not trying to harm anyone just help people.

    Have you written many stories before?

    Thanks, Billy
