  1. My father was a Dunera Boy! His name was Heiner or Harry Boxer. He may have used his step father’s surname of Theimer. He changed his name when he was returned to England and joined the British army to Harold (Harry) Stewart Latimer.

    He lived in England,Germany, Malaysia and South Africa before settling in Germany where he lived for the last 20 years of his life. He passed away in 1996 at the age of 76.

    My father studied written Chinese in intern camp, played jazz and was an entertaining individual.

    When he saw that all possessions were being confiscated from those on board The Dunera, my father went to the back of the ship, undid the lining of his trouser’s fly and placed the miniature bible, magnifying glass and wrist watch his step father had given him before they parted company in Vienna. I have those 3 items in my possession! Although he was born Jewish, my father was a practicing Christian.

    I would be very interested in contacting anyone who may still be alive who may remember him.
