Morse, Alden George

Alden, or George, as he was known to his mates, was born on the 21st April 1917 in Wynyard, Tasmania. He enlisted in the RAAF in Burnie, Tasmania, on the 26th July 1940.

Regrettably, there are three George Morses in the Nominal Roll. All were members of the RAAF during the War, and we are not sure if the one in the photo is the one we have selected. However, the photograph is a gem, and shows the conditions in which the boys languished while up in the Darwin area during the war. In reality, the conditions were tough, hot and humid, and baths few and far between.

George was discharged as Corporal from the RAAF, no doubt as clean as a whistle, on the 23rd November 1945.
