ARTHUR FRANCIS EMERY, DFC
460 SQUADRON RAAF

visits since 4 August 2003

 

James Emery told me that Arthur Emery was the younger brother of Alexander Emery. According to Alexander, Arthur enlisted at age 18 years and became a navigator (not a tail gunner). James Emery's father has Arthur's actual flight log that ends on the 33rd mission in 1945 so he was just about to complete his campaign which is tragic. 

Alexander said that Arthur's Lancaster PB567 was shot down, but he managed to escape but was shot near a border.

James Emery has the actual flight manual that Arthur used to learn about navigation and other flight data.

Greetings Peter.

Thanks for your reply. As far as I am aware Arthur Emery enlisted in New Zealand and is recorded in the N.Z. records. I am reasonably sure he was born in Victoria, perhaps at Stanhope, and moved to N.Z. with his parents. I know he trained in Canada, and believe he was a Tail Gunner (he was a Navigator).

I will ask his sister.......

I will get back to you shortly.

Regards Ivan.
