I am looking for Ron Carnell or his relatives .

All I know is that he was in the air force during WW1 and was posted at Queenbean at the end of the War.

Tony,  The only record I can find is of a Ronald Cecil CARNELL who was in the Air Force but that was in World War 2

are you sure about the spelling?

Tony,  If this is the correct one he is listed on the Nominal Roll at the Australian War Memorial

He died in 2008 in Melbourne, Victoria - I can check further for you if needed

Hi Elizabeth

Sorry I did not realize that I had WW!  I had meant 2  and that is Definitely the right person I wonder if he had any family.

I had thought him to be in Sydney.

Cheers Tony

Thank you so much

He obviously had three children with Betty and they are quite possibly in Melbourne.

Cheers Tony
