The following was advised by Donald’s daughter Katherine:

A moment of curiosity on Anzac Day this year made me look up 459 squadron and realise that my father's name was not included, although I noted that the names of his crew and other friends from the Squadron were listed: Barnard, Crisp, Moll, Campbell, Fagg and  others whom I either met or knew my father was in contact with.

I am in possession of his log book and a few photos (Tel Aviv '43, West Africa, Cairo...)

I know he trained in Victoria, Canada (Calgary) and the UK.
