My father John Rae was from Dalmuir. The pilot James McCall was from Edinburgh Charlie Underwood and Allen Jolly were English not sure where and Robert Peterson was from British Columia, Canada , PJ Anderson also Canadian from Toronto.
Obviously these men apart from John Rae are not related to me but I would like to find anyone related to them as they were an aircrew who flew over 25 missions together during WW2.

Thanks

Hi Rose
The 1900 date is too early I believe from the bits of information I have Allan Jolly could have been born around 1914 to 1926
I know my search is difficult because I dont know where he came from
Thanks for you help
Rosemary

There are 2 possible children for Allen and Stella born in Watford. You can find the births on free bmd. The daughter may have her tree on here, so you could try and contact her.

Added:
That daughter appears to have married twice, her surname as displayed on genes shows on 192.com in Arundel.

Added:
The husband (Alan D) appears to have many Applied Chemistry academic publications.
