RAAF Maryland pilots??Hi Brian, John Woodhouse McDonald according to the AWM nominal roll he ended the war as a Flight Lieutenant, no major decorations listed. No other details. Details on your list of aircrew. Pilots: CF Lee (404019) 10 May 41 15 Jul 41 KIA DLJ Lawrence (404018) 10 May 41 13 Aug 41 KIA RG Fox (406034) 23 Sept 41 - ? GB Parker (400599) 6 Dec 41 18 Mar 42 KIA MW Scope (404121) 7 Jun 41 19 Apr 42 Observers JMcK Simpson (402026) ? 15 Jul 41 KIA PB Dive (401273) ? 23 Dec 41 KIA RK Grimley (402275) ? 18 Mar 42 KIA Air Gunners JCG Neill (404036) ? 15 Jul 41 KIA WE Anderson (402196) ? 18 Mar 42 KIA DA McKell (400061) ? 24 Nov 41 KIA It is sobering to note that only two of the above aircrew survived the war. 69 Sqn RAF is not a primary area of my research so there are some gaps. However I am interested in combat claims attributed to Maryland crews as it seems they had some success in aerial combat (or survival!). Of the Aussies with 69 Sqn, I believe - Fox, Parker, McDonald and Lawrence (with crews) achieved a few enemy a/c as probables or damaged. The nominal list I have is for all crew serving with 69 Sqn prior to 1944. So the following were with the unit during the Maryland period but may actually have flown other types. No details about their assigned crews. Peter G Cameron (400112) apparently served as an AG with 69 Sqn from 23 Sept 41 until 4 May 42, later remustered as a pilot and flew with 682 (PR) Sqn RAF. Murray J Lavery (404106) pilot from 7 Jun 41 until 1 Sept 41. More Possibles Frank D Barnett (406088) - not sure of mustering or period with unit. Kenneth W Iredale (403269) WAG, posting with 203 Sqn RAF from Apr 42 I also have a note that an Australian named Ben White was attached to the unit in Jan 42. He may have been a Spit pilot. Even so I have been unable to find any further details or confirm nationality or full name. Sorry to say I have no photos for any of the crew. You could try the AWM online collection or their service files. Joss, to clarify your post about Gimson - he was not a member of the RAAF, rather son of Australian parents and enlisted in the RAF with RAF service number. So Brian is correct by stating Gimson was an Australian in the RAF. The other aircrew mentioned above were Australian born, enlisted in the RAAF but serving on attachment to the RAF and 69 Sqn RAF.
