    Default CPL David Dolby VR 744863 POW

    Hello everyone,
    Cpl David Dolby VR 744863 was another Oakham School Old Boy who was there in 1926.
    He possibly was captured by the Japanese in Jarva. (when?). I have no idea whch RAF unit he had been serving with.
    He died on 6-10-44 age 27 and is buried in grave 14 B 11 at Ambon War Cemetery, Indonesia.
    That is so little information, given for his life, I appeal for any help please.
    Thank you to our POW experts.

    Hi Roy,

    Not much more than you already know, I'm afraid:-

    DOLBY,David - 744863 - Unit not known - Held Java - Moluccas(Haruku, Ambon) - Died Ambon (Weijami) - 6-10-1944 - Buried Ambon.

    See:

    p.115

    Maybe Finn Buch could help with a unit ?

    Regards,
    Col.
