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.

Fitzgerald Henry Parker


The aircraft with Flying Officer Fitzgerald on board took off from at 1.30 a.m. from Richmond on a night flight to Point Cook and for some reason crashed seconds later onto the Richmond Golf Course killing the crew instantly.  

Ground crew heard the explosion and ran to the crash site with torches and flares but found the bomber smashed into the ground with debris covering a wide area with some of the crew thrown a considerable distance from the crash site.
