Vale Don Charlwood
Don Charlwood RAAF passed away on Monday. Navigator on 103 Squadron in 1943 on the fiirst crew to complete a tour of Ops in 7 months.
Best selling author of "No Moon Tonight" and "Journeys into Night": both being autobiographical. He had just returned from UK from the commemoration of the Bomber Command memorial. At the age of 96 it must have been a pretty hard task - but one he would not shirk.
A Historian and a foundation member of Australian Post-War Air Traffic Control. He recruited almost all Controllers from the aircrew ranks over 15 years. He will be sorely missed by many.
A gentleman and above all; a mate.
