Dudley enlisted on 21 Jul 1922 from Melbourne, VIC

Posted from No 85 Squadron RAAF in which he was serving since June 1944, as an NCO. Native of New South Wales. He was in 457 Squadron from April 1945 to November 1945, and one of the pilots to be on duty when 457 Squadron wound up.

Little is known about Dudley except that he was fined for flying a trainer too close to the ground. All we can say is "Good on you Dudley!"

Discharged 14 Mar 1946 from No. 6 Hospital.
