Allora
Queensland, Australia
Death: Aug. 14, 1942

Andrews, the son of Harold and Louisa Annie Andrews, was a husky, likable, cheerful and well-mannered man from Brisbane, Queensland, Australia. He was one of six Australian pilots that were chosen from the Royal Australian Air Force and assigned to the 435th Squadron to learn how to fly the latest American Flying Fortresses.

On August 14, 1942, Andrews was co-pilot on B-17E #41-2656 'Chief Seattle', assigned to the 19th Bombardment Group, 435th Bombardment Squadron. They were flying from RAAF Base Townsville Australia on an extended reconnaissance mission of New Guinea, Rabaul and the Solomons area. The plane and crew were never seen again. It is believed the aircraft was intercepted by Japanese fighters.
