    A possible maybe is:-

    1096140 Wt Off Derek Irwin O'CALLAGHAN Commissioned to Plt Off(P) (184578).

    ROYAL AUXILIARY AIR FORCE RESERVE OF OFFICERS
    SECRETARIAL BRANCH
    Commission relinquished
    Flying Officer D. I. O'CALLAGHAN (184578) retaining the rank of Flight Lieutenant. 13th June 1959 (possibly 55th Birthday?).

    Hi, Sgt O'Callaghan of 601 Squadron was my grandfather. Is there anything in particular that you'd like to know?

    Hi FCJM5499.

    I would like to hear more about your Grandfather. I have tried contacting you but you haven't activated PM on your profile (yet).

    Please contact me via PM or via jejATlogitDOTdk (replace AT and DOT with the obvious).

    Hi
    Peter could be busy, but I dropped an email to him. He is, and actually I am as well, after informations and pictures related to 601 service.
