Just something I noticed when Maguire's flying his plane, going by his uniform I say he served with the Royal New Zealand Air Force during the war. His uniform backs that idea up by being a WW2 Royal Air Force uniform with the shoulder patch that reads 'New Zealand' (difficult to see but its there).
The Beaufighter fits since it was operated bt two RNZAF squadrons and in the SE Asia and Pacific theatres.
EDIT: After rewatching the landing scene a few times on Youtube the shoulder patch actually reads 'IRELAND'.
There were a few Irish pilots in the RAF during WW2, though I'm not sure whether they warranted a country patch since Ireland wasn't part of the British Commonwealth.
