Posted The families of two men killed during World War II gathered at dawn at a beach in Broome for a memorial service they have waited 70 years for. Flight Sergeants Ronald Smith and Ronald Kerrigan were killed in September 1944 when their RAAF Beaufighter crashed just after take-off in the waters off Broome. But for many years the plane wreck could not be found, and their bodies were never recovered. Two years ago two amateur historians decided to solve the mystery once and for all, beginning a painstaking search using a small boat and donated sonar equipment. In June, they were able to phone the men's families with the news they had been waiting for — the wreck had been found. Now a memorial plaque has been erected high on the grass overlooking Cable Beach, less than two kilometres from the men's final resting place.
