DOB is September 03, 1924. Raymond did in fact falsify his date of birth in his eagerness to serve in the armed forces.  

He was in fact only 17 years old upon joining. His correct details were discovered by the Army and he was discharged in 1942. 

Raymond then joined the Australian Navy and served for some years. - John R Lee (son)
