    Hello,

    AUSTRALIA.

    434223 F/O William Robert HAYES (should read HAYLES) RAAF (later Air Medal [US]*).

    434223 F/O (Air Gunner) William Robert HAYLES US Air Medal, RAAF, was officially discharged (on medical grounds), from the RAAF on 28 August, 1945. William 'Bill' Robert Hayles had previously served in the 2nd AIF (Australian Army - Oct, 1939 to Nov, 1942, Gunner, 2/3rd Fld. Regt., North Africa) and No.24 Sqn RAAF (Liberators - 8 Ops.). He died at Geelong, Victoria, of an unspecified illness, on 6 June, 1947.

    * Hayles Air Medal (US), was for a stint he did on 529BS/380BG (March 1944-May 1944), under F/Lt (Acft. Cmdr./Pilot) John Alexander NAPIER DFC, RAAF.
