    AL172 is quoted on this 3 squadron site,
    http://www.3squadron.org.au/indexpages/kia.htm

    Flying Officer Harold Graham Pace, service number 824, is recorded on the Alamein Memorial, Egypt. Column 264. Age 25. Son of Arthur Harold and Jeanie Christie Pace; husband of Ida Frances Pace, of Dalveen, Queensland, Australia. B.A., LL.B,, Hons

    On 13/6/42 twelve aircraft of 3 Squadron were bounced by two 109Fs over Gazala, Oberleutnant Hans-Joachim Marseille of I/JG 27 shot down Graham Pace in Curtiss Kittyhawk I AL172, who was killed by a single shot in the head; he was buried at PP.381431. Marseille also shot down Colin MacDiarmid in AK855, who baled out wounded.

    Hello,

    AUS824 F/O H G PACE RAAF, was shot down and killed on 13-5-1942, not 13-6-1942.

    http://naa12.naa.gov.au/scripts/ItemDetail.asp?M=0&B=1158595

    See: pp.492 & 508-9 of 908.

    No.3 Sqn RAAF ORB confirms Kittyhawk serial as AL172.

    Martyn,
    You mentioned Marseille also shot down AK855 of Colin MacDiarmid. Air Britain has this aircraft lost on "16"-5-1942.
    Same MacDiarmid AUS404345 who was killed 30-5-1942 on AL151 ?
    Regards,
    Henk.

    Hello

    ACW1 Edith A. HARVEY - 2065012 - the Newcastle Journal of May 23rd 1942 reported the following:

    Wrong Medicine Killed W.A.A.F.
    A 47 year old W.A.A.F, Edith Alice Harvey, who was given a dose of caustic soda in mistake for liquid paraffin, died three months later. At the Bristol inquest yesterday, the Coroner (Mr. A. E. Barker) returned a verdict of "Accidental death."
    Miss Cathleen Harris, W.A.A.F. sick bay orderly at a West Country camp, said that a dose of liquid paraffin was ordered for Harvey. "I took a bottle labelled liquid paraffin and gave one ounce to the patient," said Miss Harris. She immediately complained of severe burning in thorat and mouth. The bottle was found to contain caustic.


    Regards

    Simon
