2 T'VILLE AIRMEN FOR LONDON
In response to a request from Melbourne for possible recruits to Join the R.A.A.F. contingent for the Victory Parade In London on June 8, North Eastern Area Headquarters submitted several names from this area. Advice was received on Friday afternoon that two candidates have born selected to proceed to Melbourne on Saturday morning. The selected men are: —
No 75774 ex-Sergeant C. W. Pask. No. 48677 L.A.C. M. J. Cavenett. L.A.C. Cavanett, enlisted from Red Hill South Australia, on June 16, 1942. He saw service in New Guinea from September 1942 to November 1943. Coming back to Australia, he was attached to 86 Squadron and then in December, 1945. was transferred to 6 T.M.O., at Townsville. Ex-Sergeant Pask is a member of a well known Ravenswood family, whose name has been connected with early day sport on the Ravenswood and Charters Towers goldfields. Gordon Pask, father of the young Air Force representative, was a selector on the Kirk River and with Mrs. Pask, has recently taken up residence at Bowen Road, Townsville. Two uncles in Tom and George are also Townsville residents. Sergeant Pask enlisted on May 12, 1942, and saw service in the Pacific from February 10, 1944, to January 28, 1945. He was Mentioned in Despatches for his daring in the landing at Altape, the first big combined major movement by R.A.A.F. and American Forces. Both representatives leave by air transport this morning to report in Melbourne, and are due to leave Australia on April 19. It is anticipated the tour will extend to almost five months.7

Thomas died in 1986. In his obituary it says "he was the eighth child of a family of 10 whose father, William Pask, a native of Liverpool in England, arrived in Australia as an 11-year old cabin boy in 1864. In the late 1870's William met and married Margaret Stewart, formerly of Scotland, and after some time the couple found a permanent home at the Kirk River gold diggings where William worked as a teamster."5
