    Phil,

    Not a complete answer, and possibly a red herring. Raymond E. Amey.

    http://www.federationgenealogie.qc.ca/avisdeces/avis/pdf?id=171500.

    AMEY, Raymond E. RCAF Age 84 years, together again in spirit with
    his beloved wife, Isabel. Survived by his dear friend, Laurette.
    Private arrangements in care of The Memorial Funeral Home of Hulse,
    Playfair & McGarry. Published in the Ottawa Citizen on 1/7/2006

    As his dear friend Laurette may still be with us I have removed her surname. You can find it at the link.

    Regards,

    Dave

    To add to the possible red herring, but there's a Ray Amey listed with 416 Sqn in the late 1950's, including some photos:

    If anybody feels like playing "let's match faces" with Simon's photo, here is where I think Phil's interest comes from:

    Photo of chap standing in front of the Thunderbolt has captioned:

    W.O R.E. Amey, flies in an RAF Thunderbolt squadron operating from a forward airfield on the Burma front. Designed as a high-altitude escort fighter. The “T-Box” is formidable also as a dive-bomber and low level strafing plane. No. 79 (RAF) SQN. Dec 44.

    Regards,

    Dave
