    ... Australia lost one of its greatest fighter pilots.

    Time to recognise and remember a brilliant fighter pilot | theage.com.au

    Thanks Graeme. Interesting to see that Dallas might in fact be the leading Australian ace of all time. The article I posted says 48-50 and the AFC site states that the latest research claims 50 (49 a/c + 1 balloon) which is 3 more than Little. Interesting stuff.

    Thanx Wilcat, never heard of Dallas. Sounds very unselfish and deserving a VC. I have heard of Little. When I was young my father had a paperback collection - about 20 books - each about a different ace of WWI. Read them until the pages came out!
