In addition A J Rutherford could be either Albert John Rutherford DOD/POW, or Allan James Rutherford Acc Kd. - both of Lismore. The status code for this veteran has also been given as KIA.
The cause of death for veteran W D Hatt is not clear, while the Australian War Memorial gives the cause of death for H C Youngberry as unknown - he was a POW. These two veterans have thus been given the status In Memoriam.
All other status codes are taken from information contained in the Australian War Memorial Roll of Honour, the Commonwealth War Graves Commission database, the World War 2 Nominal Roll and the National Archives of Australia. Those veterans given the status of DOD/POW may have died as prisoners of war. L B Barnes may have been accidentally killed, as his death occurred in Australia. The Australian War Memorial awards a DFM to L J Gilbert and C W Woods.
