Those who served during World War II at RAAF Base Mallala during World War II – and the community that supported them – have been acknowledged at a commemoration service.  

RAAF Base Edinburgh personnel came together with the Mallala community on September 7 to acknowledge the South Australian town that supported one of the largest air bases in the region during the war, where 39 aviators lost their lives while in training at the base.
