1 W.A.G.S. Memorial Roll

The Memorial Roll commemorates to date 1,182 RAAF 1 W.A.G.S. trainees who were killed in action or on active service during WW2. These brave young men made the ultimate sacrifice in the service of their country, leaving behind grief-stricken families often not knowing what happened to their loved ones. As Wireless Operators, Air Gunners and Navigators they were crew for RAF and RAAF squadrons and served in all Theatres of War during WW2 - the U.K, Europe, the Mediterranean, the Middle East, the Pacific and Australia. Those who perished died as a result of air battles, aircraft accidents or as P.O.W’s. and many rest isolated from their homeland. Those servicemen on the MEMORIAL ROLL are listed below in alphabetical order.

This site is our way of paying homage to these 1 W.A.G.S airmen and their families. More
