WWI Australian: Air Commodore Harry Cobby, CBE, DSO, DFC & GM
Cobby was the leading fighter Ace of the Australian Flying Corps with 29 victories, despite only seeing active service for one year in 1918. After WW1 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 WW2 he had risen to the rank of Air Commodore. Cobby survived the war to die some 10 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? Limited to 100 in number.
