    • Ian Clark was the son of William Henry and Robina Jane Clark, of Te Puke.

      Barrass, M.B. (2001- 2008). Web site: Air of Authority - A History of RAF Organisation. "Squadrons numbered in the 400 series were technically units of the RCAF, RAAF and RNZAF, but their members were placed under the operational control of the RAF and are usually considered to be part of the RAF's organisational structure".

    • Re The name Clarke on Ian's photo. This was the families correct name and was what the family went by in our family . The error seems to go way back to his father William Henry incorrect name on his birth details in 1889 despite the other five siblings having the correct name Clarke recorded . A common mistake with the name Clark and Clarke in early days. The name Clark followed right down to Ian it appears. At least his fathers headstone 9/601 Tpr WH Clarke finally laid this to rest.
      It would be helpful for family research If the two spellings could be linked together. Public - Ngaire Louisa Kathleen - Other relative - 15 October 2017 - Service no 9/601 .
