    Default Graham Reese Magill

    Can anyone here please supply dates that Graham Reese Magill, a New Zealander in the RAF and later an Air Vice Marshal, was posted -

    - out of No. 47 Squadron at Khartoum to become air liaison to General Freyberg, 2NZEF in Egypt?
    - posted as Flight Commander to No. 226 Squadron at Wattisham on Bostons?
    - posted as Commanding Officer of No. 180 Squadron on Mitchells?
    - does anune know his subsequent wartime posts?

    Also did he fly Mitchells on No. 226 Squadron or was he posted out before they re-equipped?

    And does anyone here havea decent photograph of him, or an obituary from when he died on the 1st of December 1998? He was born and grew up here in Cambridge, NZ. I would like to know where he died and where he was buried. Did he stay in Britain after retirement from the RAF in 1970?

    Thanks all.

    We might not know - but we might know who does!
