    Jacky,

    As the pilot was RAAF there is a digitized casualty file: https://recordsearch.naa.gov.au/Sear...aspx?B=1082743

    I have also taken the liberty of adjusting your email address to prevent spamming.

    Regards,

    Dave

    Jacky,

    Very difficult to obtain documents from the RAF.

    The RCAF is much better, access wise. Here are instructions, en franšais, to request service files of any RCAF member killed in the war.
