459 RAAF Squadron :  3.10.1943 - August 1944

Dessert Air Force - Baltimores

Pls find attached my father's service records and evidence of service with Squadron 459.

He entered the RAAF at the age of 31 in 1941 and was 'a father figure' in his squadron as he was quite a bit older than the other crew members - he always believed that his maturity was a factor in ensuring the survival of his air crew.

He passed away on 25th January, 1975
