Biography contributed by David Barlow

Sub Lieutenant (Pilot) Ronald James Coleman of 805 Squadron RAN in Hawker Sea Fury FB.11 WE686 launched from HMAS Sydney on a Carrier Air Patrol and disappeared from his formation - his body was never recovered and he is therefore regarded as missing, presumed killed in action

Ronald Coleman's brother A32698 RAAF Aircraftman Leslie Harold Coleman served with 77 Squadron in Korea in 1954
