Eddie Geary Collection 

The Eddie Geary Collection

  • These photos are from a photo album belonging to Edwin "Eddie" Geary.
    Eddie was an RAAF cook. He served with 86 Squadron at Merauke (Dutch New Guinea) and Bohle River (Queensland)
    86 Squadron disbanded in December 1945 and Eddie then served at Labuan (Borneo) and Bofu (Japan)
    This album of photos is a mixture of Eddie's own photos, official RAAF photos and some given to him by others.
    They are presented as they are in the album so may not be in chronological order
    Please enjoy and if you can add any details please contact us at question@adf-serials.com.au
    We are most grateful to Geoff Ford for supplying these historic photos. Eddie was Geoff's father's uncle.
