He was educated at the Hutchins School, and began his law course at the Tasmanian University. He enlisted in the RAAF in December 1940 and trained in Southern Rhodesia. He completed his training in England, and
was stationed in West Africa for 12 months, before being posted back to England. He was killed whilst testing Typhoon fighters in England in 1943.

Âmbito e conteúdo

Collection consists of copies of letters of James Bayley Watchorn (1921-1943) written to his parents in Hobart while he was on active service with the R.A.A.F. The letters are exceptionally well written and reflect his feelings about his life as a fighter pilot and the people he met and include descriptions of the countries where he was stationed - Rhodesia where he trained, U.K. and West Africa - although he discreetly avoided reference to the war or his flying duties. He had been educated at Hutchins School and did the first year of his law course at Tasmania University before enlisting.
