Hi Linzi,

If we are looking at the right person, this may be him:

Evening Post, Volume CXXXIX, Issue 120, 23 May 1945, Page 9



The Air Department has been advised from London of awards to 20 more members of the R.N.Z.A.F. The citations are not yet available. The awards are:


Squadron Leader Warren E. Schrader, D.F.C., Mrs J Schrader, 10 Mount Street, Wellington (m.)

Acting Squadron Leader James R Cullen, D.F.C. Mr G R Cullen, Whangamata Road, Waihi (f).

The only other electoral roll record for him shows as:

The 1969 Electoral Roll for Grey Lynn, Auckland shows John Ronald Cullen residing at 83 Rose Road, and employed as a Cargo Worker.

I cannot find any other record for him, but will keep hunting!
