New Guinea Coast, Papua New Guinea, March, 1943

A tribute to Australian fighter pilots that flew in the Pacific air war. The print depicts Pilot Officer John Gorton of 77 Squadron RAAF patrolling over the New Guinea coast in his P4OK Kittyhawk in 1943. He flew Hurricanes, Kittyhawks and Spitfires.

Earlier in John Gorton's flying career, he was flying Hurricane's and was scrambled on 30th January 1940, with Sgt Alan Coutie and "Swampy" Marsh, a Canadian from Kallang. Whilst climbing to engage the Japanese bombers south of Singapore, they were bounced by Zeros. In the dogfight that followed, Gorton's Hurricane was badly damaged. In putting the damaged aircraft down in a cleared area on one of the islands, he hit some overgrown gasoline storage tanks, Smashing his face on the instrument panel and gunsight and sustaining considerable injuries to his arms and legs. A Dutch plantation owner took him in. Both Alan Coutie and "Swampy" Marsh were killed in action. Eventually, two R.A.F. airmen came to the island in an air-sea rescue launch, took one look at Gorton, pronounced him dead, took his wallet, watch and pay book and returned to Singapore. A week later a shot up Australian Brewster Buffalo crashed a little distance from where Gorton was recuperating. The unconscious pilot was lifted from his damaged plane.

They were picked up by an R.A.F. air-sea rescue launch and returned to Singapore. In Singapore, both pilots boarded the SS Derrymore to take them back to Australia for hospitalisation but the ship was torpedoed and sunk on its way to Batavia. John Gorton went on to become Prime Minister of Australia from 1968 to 1971. Sir John Grey Gorton, GCMG, AC, CH, MA (Oxen), was made a Knight of the Order of St Michael and St George in 1977.
