Footnote:

The Argus May 29 1945 p16;
Reported on Flt Lieut. P. C. Cornish, son of Mr. and Mrs. Claude Cornish, Ellis road Glen Iris having been awarded a Bar to his DFC. (A "Bar" means a second Distinguished Flying Cross)
An earlier report (Argus 27 1944 p3), with a photo of Peter, said he was with Bomber Command and had completed 70 operational flights over Europe.

Death notice in The Age June June 26 1975 (p22), Claude Cannon Cornish of 22 Ellis Rd Glen Iris died June 25
Same DOD as above, so this looks like it is the Carlton footballer Claude Cornish.

Claude is one of the 139 Carlton VFL players whose images are missing.
Blueseum would appreciate any family member (or anyone) sending us a photo/s and/or any further info. on Claude so we can complete his bio page.
