Good morning, I hope everyone is having a fun filled festive season, no matter where you are in the world.

I was wondering if I could have some help here. I am researching the story of the death of RAFVR 72526 Pilot Kenneth Kirkcaldie of 32 Sqdn. I know how he died but what I would like to find out is more about his personal life and his family. I understand looking at the Aukland War memorial that there were othe members of his family in the armed forces adn I would like to there fore learn about them as well. I believe he had a brother John Alan Kirkcaldie who I am very much intersted to learn about.

I would like to find out as mmuch as I can aeout the two of them, about their lives outside the forces and about what happened when John died etc.

Cheers,

Alex.

Kirkcaldy and Stains, what did they do?

Esma Mae Kikcaldy, Kenneth's wife, what is known about her, what was her maiden name?

Kirkaldie and Staines was an upmarket department store on Lambton quay Wellington which closed in 2016. It is now a David Jones department store
