World War 11 Casualties


If you could spare a few dollars to help with the running costs of this website would be very much appreciated.

Thank you from Gravesites of Tasmania.

Davis Lawrence Arthur


Born 29 Aug 1917 Wilson St Burnie he was the son of Arthur Thomas and Amy Annie Eliza Davis (nee Ellis) 

Flt Sgt L.A. Davis was the Air Gunner on Lancaster LM 223 which was part of 463 squadron that took off from RAAF Waddington on the night of the 23 September 1944 to bomb the aqueduct over the Dortmund-Ems Canal. 

Nothing was heard from the aircraft after it took off and it did not return to base. 

After the war searches and enquiries were made but to date there has been no trace of the aircraft or its crew.
