OT - Walter Oswald Watt

Recommended Posts

I was just passing St Jude's Cemetery this morning, and once again felt the irresitable urge to visit Toby's grave. "A great man and a great soldier" it says on his tomb. Tragically drowned at Bilgola Beach in a few feet of water. Slipped on the rocks, knocked himself out, fell into the shallow water and drowned.




At the outbreak of war, Oswald Watt enlisted in the Aviation Militaire of the French Foreign Legion, bringing with him his own personal machine (a Bleriot) as a donation. Later he joined the Australian Flying Corps, rising to Squadron Commander of 2 Sqn AFC, and eventually, Lt. Col OIC Australian Training Wing.




Rest In Peace
