Air Commodore Harry Cobby, CBE, DSO, DFC & GM
Air Commodore Harry Cobby, CBE, DSO, DFC & GM was the leading fighter Ace of the Australian Flying Corps with twenty-nine victories, despite only seeing active service for one year in 1918. After WWI, Harry Cobby transferred to the newly formed Australian Air Force. Leaving the Permanent Air Force for the reserve, he rejoined in 1939, where, by the end of WWII, he had risen to the rank of Air Commodore. Cobby survived the war to die some ten years later in 1955 at the age of 61.
Our depiction of Cobby has him in trench coat looking up at the sky, perhaps waiting for a colleague to return?
