    George John Isiah Clarke and
    Pilot-Officer Alfred Peter Nurdett Hordern was granted by
    Mr. Justice Nicholas in the Equity
    Court to-day.
    Clarke was killed in the battle of
    Dakar, where, according to a letter
    received by his widow from the com
    manding officer of HMAS. Australia. he displayed great gallantry and
    did much to prevent severe damage
    to the shin, to which he was attached
    as a member of the Fleet Air arm.

    Hordern flew out over the North
    Sea while on patrol duty with the
    Royal Air Force on Anzac Day, 1940,
    and never returned.

    Clarke's widow. Ellen Elizabeth Hope
    Clarke, of Burlington Road, Strath
    field. in an affidavit, said she mar
    ried her husband In 1935. and there
    were two children.
    After thev were married they lived
    at Salamau, New Guinea, where her
    husband was a pilot employed by W.
    R. Carpenter and Co. Ltd. Later they
    lived in Sydney, her husband being
    a commercial pilot flving between
    Sydney and New Guinea.
    On the outbreak of war her hus
    band. who was on the reserve of offi
    cers Joined the R.A.A.F. nnd was at
    tached to H.M.A.S. Australia as a
    member of the Fleet Air Arm.
    Some Survivors
    Prior to last Christmas she received
    a letter from the Commanding Offi
    cer of H.M.A-S. Australia, reading:
    'It is with deepest sympathy and
    regret that I write to tell you that
    there is really no hope that your hus
    band could have survived. I have
    made every possible inquiry and have
    now received definite evidence that,
    though there are some survivors of
    the other aircraft, our brave ship
    mates are not among them.
    'Our aircraft was spotting for our
    gunfire when we were in action, and
    the devotion to duty of its crew was
    a contributing cause of this ship
    coming off comparatively lightly from
    the enemy gunfire.
    'Towards the end of the action our
    aircraft was observed to be falling
    out of control as a result of an
    attack from an enemy fighter.
    'Two of the crew made parachute
    descents, but it was impossible for
    the ship to get near the position. Your
    husband was, I fear, killed in the
    air.'
    The affidavit of Mrs. Doris Phyllis
    Truman, of Kurraba Road. Neutral
    Bay. mother of the late Pilot-Officer
    Hordern, stated that her son was re
    ported missing as a result of air
    operations on April 25, 1940.
    Hordern was 20 years of age when
    he left Australia in 1938 to join the
    R.A.F. in England. ?
