Quoting a reader:

To me, the point about these records, scant as they are, is that they help humanise the name on the grave. At 32, he must have been the old man of the Lancaster flight crew. And being a native of Sydney, born in the suburb of Kensington, must have given him an accent that caused endless merriment. Back in Sydney to receive the awful news of his death was Esther, perhaps his mother, or maybe his wife.
