    Default New Zealand pilot in RAF, S/Ldr Garry Carlton Kain

    Can anyone please tell me anything about Squadron Leader Garry Carlton Kain?

    Born Wanganui, 4 Jul 1914; the son of Wolsey and Hilda Kain.
    He joined the RAF in June 1936.
    He was flying Wellingtons with No. 75 (NZ) Squadron in 1940, and Mosquitoes with No. 487 (NZ) Squadron in 1944 it seems.
    He transferred to the RNZAF in March 1945.
    And he died in 1995.

    Can anyone fill in the gaps? Did he fly in the Battle of France like his brother Derrick 'Bill' Kain?

    Did he fly during the Battle of Britain? What other squadrons did he serve with?

    Kia ora Dave,

    Nothing positive I'm afraid but he did not fly in the Battle of Britain.
    cheers Peter
