    1922? Public - Pierre - Researcher - 29 April 2022 - Email from Bud Badley's navigator's brother.

    And finally, a strange piece of evidence about Bud Badley.

    The Forces War Records have a date of birth as 21 April 1901 in the name of Duncan Lequesne Badley.

    However New Zealand’s Births, Marriages, Deaths do not have a 1901 record in that name but do have in 1922.

    Looking at his photo and knowing that he was corresponding in 2012, I wonder how 1901 appears in the record.
