  • Noel Sharp was the son of William Callan Sharp and Hilda Alice Sharp of Mount Eden, Auckland.

    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". URL: http://www.rafweb.org/Sqn485-490.htm. The Commonwealth War Graves register incorrectly gives Sharp's date of death as 20 February 1942 (Martyn. 1998 p, 186) AWMM
