Can anyone identify an Australian in the RAF with the name Group Captain A.F.Bandit or Group Captain A.F.Banditt

I believe he was pre-war RAF (or maybe Australian who was training in the UK) I believe he had a Hawker Demon accident 27th September 1934 while with 23 Sqn at Westfield, East Sussex (if anyome has a Serial number that would be great)

I can't find him on the London Gazette

Post war he flew Miles Sparrowhawk G-AGDL in the 1947 Manx Air Race and was the first person to fly solo to Australia after WW2 in a Miles Gemini (believed G-AIDO)
