An Australian Fitter IIE (Engines) with 459 - he received his 6 months engineering training with the NO. OTU, at first when it was based at Bairnsdale, Vic, and later when it moved to East Sale (where a big aerodrome had opened and they worked mainly on Beaufort engines.)  Ian worked there for a few weeks before receiving news that he was to be posted overseas.  He left on an American boat and headed to Bombay.  I was to join 459 Squadron at Gambut in November 1943, and he stayed with that unit until it was disbanded in 1945.
