Possible WW1 record

I have four (4) great uncles who served in WW1.  I can identify three (3) and have their records but I'm unable to trace the fourth.  Arthur Frederick Blanchard THOMAS (dob 15.02.1887) was the eldest of these four brothers who all enlisted in Tasmania in 1914.  As far as I know he was still living at that time.

I would be grateful for any assistance.

Uncle Bill


      I am searching for details of my uncle, Wilhelm Julius Mann, who served in Europe in the R.A.F as a Flying

 Officer in 462 Squadron seconded from the R.A.A.F., i believe, as a Navigator in Halifax bomber no. HZ448. 

    His Service Number was 437274 and his aircraft was shot down over Dusseldorf, Germany on the night of

 24/25 February 1945. He was based at Foulsham Air Base in England and may have been incarcerated in 

 Stalag 46.
