Starting his World War II military service in the Army, Jack Harold was soon transferred to the Navy. He saw active service at Guadalcanal in the Solomon Islands, and was aboard the minesweeper HMNZS Moa when it and sister ship HMNZS Kiwi engaged a Japanese submarine, eventually sinking it after the Kiwi dropped depth charges. But the Moa’s luck didn’t hold; it was sunk in a Japanese raid, taking five of its crew with it. Jack survived, although wounded, and would return to action in the Pacific aboard submarine hunting ships. Jack was discharged from the Navy in 1945.

Both of those jokers went down with the ship. And I’m still here. Amazing isn’t it?
