    Alex,

    Was Jolly a New Zealander in the RAF? - No!

    Kenneth Frank Jolly was born in the district of St Albans, Herts., 3Q, 1917. Buried in St Albans (Hatfield Road) Cemetery, Herts.

    Errol Martyn (in FYT1-3), lists only two Jollys as fatalities

    NZ413858 F/O (Pilot) Maurice Carson JOLLY RNZAF + 13-11-1942, 5(C)OTU Beaufort II AW384.

    NZ40648 P/O (Pilot) Morrison JOLLY RNZAF + 24-7-1941, 218 Sqn Wellington IC R1726.

    There could well be others, who survived.

    Be in touch shortly about another matter.

    Col.
