Oratia's latest addition to the history of New Zealand military service is Paul Harrison's Seek and Destroy: The History of 3 Squadron RNZAF, which was published on 5 April (see information here).

Nigel Hopkins of Beach FM, Kapiti spoke with Paul about the book on 23 April. 

On 12 April, Paul and Retired Colonel Roger Pearce (who contributed an appendix about the squadron's activities in Malaysia and Vietnam) presented a copy of Seek and Destroy to Carolyn Carr, Chief Librarian of the New Zealand Defence Force Library.
