    Hello,

    102215 Major P G BODLEY, can now be identified as - 102215 Major Percival G BODLEY SAAF (later MiD LG 14-6-45 p.3030). Bodley had earlier served on No.113 Squadron, flying Blenheims. He receives a brief mention in - Bloody Shambles Vol.1/Shores et al. p.263. No mention of Bodley here:

    Bodley later served on Mountbatten's staff as an Air Transport advisor.

    Les Munday RAAF passed away on 10-3-1949.
