    Hi,
    F/O William H ‘Bill’ Matheson is probably F/O William Murdoch Matheson RAAF 409169 who was with 601 in Italy in 1943.
    His service file has been digitalised in the Australian National Archives, barcode 5247563, Page 19 has "601 Sqn Flying duties 9/5/43"

    Alan.

    Many thanks, the one!
    I found that Sgt or F/S Campbell and F/S M R Maury Cooper were both from NZ.

    NZ413933 Maurice Roy Cooper, RNZAF. He would have been nicknamed Maurie, rather than Maury.
