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.

Tymms Michael Justin


The following is taken from TASMANIANS AT WAR IN THE AIR 1939-1945 with the kind permission of Brian Winspear   

Had he lived through the War, Michael would undoubtedly been in the medical profession.  His father ‘Tiny’ Tymms was one of five brothers, all doctors.  Michael’s own brother Brian was a doctor, and his daughter Kathy is a rheumatologist.   

Michael was born in Launceston in 1923 and went to Scotch College , Launceston and Geelong Grammar.  He joined the R.A.A.F. at 20 as an air gunner, and was on a training flight near Bicester, Oxon when the whole crew of the Wellington was killed when it inexplicably crashed.  

Just another of the many airmen killed in air accidents.
