RAAF WORLD WAR II ROLL OF HONOUR FOR WESTERN AUSTRALIA

This Roll of Honour lists the men and women who enlisted in the Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) in Western Australia for World War II service and died as the result of that service.  Their names are recorded on 11 Plaques affixed to the eastern wall of the Undercroft of the State War Memorial, Kings Park, Perth. The Plaques were unveiled on Sunday 6 November 1955.

A total of 18,615 men and 3,345 women enlisted in Western Australia for service with the RAAF.

The records of enlistment are provided by the Department of Veterans’ Affairs World War II Nominal Roll and the National Roll of Honour is provided by the Australian War Memorial.

The names of men and women who died while serving in the RAAF Units are shown in blue, those whose names are shown in red died while serving attached to RAF (Royal Air Force) Squadrons or Units, while those whose names are shown in green died while serving attached to RCAF (Royal Canadian Air Force), RNZAF (Royal New Zealand Air Force), South African Air Force (SAAF) or United States Army Air Force (USAAF) Squadrons or Units, or while under aircrew training with the RAF in Southern Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe).  This has been done to illustrate the outcome that the Air Training Plan (often referred to in Australia as the Empire Air Training Scheme) had on the disposition of, in particular, RAAF aircrew members.
