Mr. and Mrs. W. D. Good, of Dunrobin road, Brighton, have been informed that their son, Squadron Leader Duncan Good, D.F.C., has been reported missing from operations abroad on April 28. Squadron Leader Good was awarded the D.F.C. last May. He was engaged on a night reconnaissance, and after having been wounded by a shell bursting in the cockpit he completed his task, despite anti-aircraft fire and searchlights, and collapsed from loss of blood. He was married in London last November to Miss Elsie Betts..."from the Adelaide Advertiser 05 May 1941 (nla.gov.au)
