Hi Kass,

 

Thanks for the link.  The records state that he joined 66 on 13 July 1917, was admitted to 10 Stationary hospital, St Omer on 16 July 1917, transferred to 39 General hospital Le Havre on 19 July 1917 and discharged on 7 September.

 

Regards

HuckJ

Hi HuckJ!

Here is a link for you to also look through.  There are 78 pages of his record on line with the National Archives of Australia:

http://naa12.naa.gov.au/scripts/imagine.asp?B=8395401&I=1&SE=1

If the link doesn't work, then search his name at the following link http://naa12.naa.gov.au/ after you login as a guest.  This is a great resource for researching Australians as many of the Great War papers are on-line.
 
Regards,
Kass

There is some limited information on his carreer after July 1917 at:
 
Walter married Lorna Blanch De Crespigny, daughter of Philip Champion De Crespigny and Wilhelminah Walstab, on 25 Nov 1925.
 
If you send an email to Bob and Robyn Bray at: robynbray@ozemail.com.au they may possibly be able to help you as they have Walter Ballantyne Tunbridge in their family tree.

I am researching the above who must have been posted to 66 squadron in July 1917 (Air76 does not say so?)  He is recorded as having made two flights on 14 July and then there is no further record. There is a note on his Air76 that he was admitted to hospital on 16 July. Does anyone know any think about what might have happened to him?
