|Date of Death
|Next of Kin
|Mr. Edward Quentin Luck, "Jigalong", Babakin, Western Australia, who is listed simply as "friend" in casualty notification. Notifications were also to be sent to the Resident Principal, Kingsley Fairbridge Farm School, Pinjarra, Western Australia where it is thought that Ian was a pupil. This school took in child migrants who were often told that they were orphans when in fact they were not. It is therefore not possible to say who Ian's real next kin may have been.
