  • Events, new training centres to mark 20-year anniversary of New Zealand soldier’s death in Timor-Leste


    Members, supporters and those who participated in either the 2018 or 2019 'Timor 1942 Commando Campaign Tours' will be interested to see the following story related to the 20th Anniversary of the death, killed in action, of New Zealand peacekeeper Private Leonard Manning.

    A few of us on the 2018 tour visited Private Manning's memorial at Tilomar, while most participants in the 2019 tour had the pleasure of meeting Lieutenant-Colonel Martin Dransfield who was the commander of the New Zealand 2nd/1st Battalion at the time of the soldier’s death and is now posted as a strategic advisor to the Timor-Leste Defence Force.  Martin was Master of Ceremonies at last year's Anzac Day ceremony in Dili.
