    Arthur Brand

    After training at 1st Australian Commando Training Battalion, Arthur joined the unit at Canungra, Qld as a Trooper on 15 May 1943, but before the unit left for New Guinea, he fell ill and was transferred to hospital on 20 May 1943 and was discharged from hospital on 6 Jun 1943. He then spent some time recuperating and embarked aboard "KATOOMBA" for New Guinea, disembarking at LAE on 19 Feb 1944 and re-joined the unit on 29 Mar 1944.

    Brass Plaque's Location.

    Hi Christy The plaque looks like a Department of Veterans Affairs (DVA) plaque, that is supplied for ex service personnel, who have been deemed to have died as a result of their war service after discharge. My dad was cremated and he has a plaque exactly like your dads on the W.A. War Graves Cemetery wall at Karrakatta. The plaques are located as far as I know in the state of their last residency. I would suggest you contact the DVA in your state and ask for info on Norman and the plaque. Hoping I have answered your query sufficiently. Cheers Peter Epps

    Kevin Thomas Wyburn

    Kevin was a Lieutenant, with 2/1st Tank Attack Regiment and was attached to the unit, for a short period, on New Britain for training purposes. Being attached meant that he was not part of the establishment of the Squadron.

    Norman Tillett

    Hi Christy Glad to hear from you. I'm currently adding the info into each mans Bio in the "men of the 2/2" section and am in the "M's" at the moment, if you click on some of the names in the A to L you will see what I'm doing. The info I have is purely 2/2 orientated, so if you or the family wish to add any other info please don't hesitate to let us know. A good example is Alan Luby NX55531, I have his 2/2 info and Ed Willis has added a lot more to his story. We also would like 1 or 2 photos of each soldier for their Bio and the only known one of your dad is this not so good one, so if you can supply any better ones please do. Kind regards Peter Epps
