The Northern Territory Library wishes to update its Roll of Honour database created http://www.ntlexhibit.nt.gov.au/exhibits/show/bod
to commemorate those who were killed or who died as a result of their wounds received on 19th February 1942 when Darwin was bombed.
Jack Quiggen, Machinist’s Mate 2nd Class (283-28-67), was born on 11 February 1918 in Bedford, Cuyahoga County, Ohio, the son of John Douglas Quiggen and Catherine Jane Kermode. His parents immigrated in 1905 from the Isle of Man. He was the third of six children, and in 1930 he lived at Maple Heights, Cuyahoga, Ohio.
Quiggen enlisted on 6 September 1939 in Cleveland, Ohio and served on the destroyers Mason, Kennison and Craven before joining the Peary on 17 January 1942. He was twenty-three and unmarried when he died in Darwin. His body was recovered and buried at Bagot Hospital Cemetery; he was later re-buried at Berrimah War Cemetery.
