Return to Northern Territory, October 2012

Plans at the moment are to stay in the Darwin area, probably for around 2 weeks. I'm hoping to get down to Adelaide River this time to photograph a...

RAAF Casualty Database

Hi All, As some of you may already be aware, earlier this year (on the RAAF's 91st Birthday), I launched a new website titled the "RAAF Casualty Database".

I'm specifically looking for someone who might be able to advise of the status of missing servicemen (ie, are they still missing or have they since been located/identified/buried). I'm particularly int...

Re: Sidney O. Westrom

Hi Sylvia, According to the American Battle Monuments Commission website , PFC WESTROM was declared dead on February 16, 1946. Using the 1 Year and 1 Day 'rule', this would mean that PFC WESTROM may have been killed on February 15, 1945. If this is the case, the 32nd Division was taking part in the ...

Re: New Book on RAAF in SW Pacific

I managed to pick this up from eBay. Not a bad book from what I've read so far - I really like the appendix of RAAF air-to-air claims.
