    Hi Jon,
    AIR 78 isn't available, but using the FWR equivalent they have a William Wills 520893 enlisted 1925. Obviously this wouldn't tally if he was 29, but if he was 39, then he would have been 18-19 on enlistment. That would seem to tally with his service number, too.

    Hope this helps,
    Jeff

    Jon

    Air 78/172 has "WILLS William 520893"

    No middle name on the card. However his headstone does have William Joseph:
