    • Gordon Jillett was the son of John Robert and Dinah Maud Jillett, of New Plymouth, Taranaki, New Zealand.

      Reference is made in Maurice E. McGreal's diary (page 151) to Mr Jillett's death.Refer to the MS Collection, Auckland War Memorial Museum. AWMM
    • Gordan Grant Jillett (known as Grant) enlisted in the Royal New Zealand Air Force (RNZAF) in 1940 and was sent straight to England for training. Sergeant Jillett went on to fly the Vickers Wellesley light bomber with the 218 Squadron. Grant and his crew were lost on a raid over Germany on 21 June 1941. He was 23 years of age when the plane went missing. A letter he wrote to his parents, with the purpose of being opened and read after his death in June 1942 was published in the Taranakian. In the letter he thanks his parents for all they have done for him; “Very often your unselfishness has not been appreciated at the time and it is only now that I realise how you yourselves have unstintingly gone without in order that I might have things. My only regret is that it is now too late to repay you.” A copy of the full letter is printed in Lest We Forget by Jack West, p.202 Public - Louise - Researcher - 9 July 2019 - West, J. (1995). Lest We Forget. New Plymouth: New Plymouth Boy’s High School Centennial Trust.

E hangaia tonutia ana te Maumaharatanga Tuihono; tāpirihia ai ngā whakahoutanga me ngā pūkete i ia wiki. I ētahi wā, kāore anō kia whakaūhia ngā pūkete e ngā kaimahi o Te Whare Taonga, tēnā pea he hapa kei roto i ngā kōrero.
