Australia at War - 2014 50c Uncirculated Coin Australian Flying Corps

During the Mesopotamian campaign in 1915, the AFC answered the call for resources, supplying four officers and 41 men in support of the Anglo-Indian forces who were battling a Turkish threat around the Persian Gulf. The brave men of the AFC were from many backgrounds and left a diverse legacy. Former school teacher Frank McNamara became the AFC’s only Victoria Cross recipient and Sir  Lawrence James Wackatt, ’Father of the Australian aircraft industry,’ was knighted for his services. Two officers, Hudson Fysh and Paul McGinness, purchased an Avro aircraft laying the foundations for the Queensland and Northern Territory Aerial Service, better known today as Qantas.
