  1. I have his NZEF records and just this morning retrieved his RFC record from Find My Past. Thanks for the Te Aroha info, was not aware of that. We had such stories told to us as kids of his escapades which would seem are not of his exploits but perhaps of Major Hector Grant-Taylor. Sad for us because we thought him a legend. That feeling will however never go away and he looks as though he had a good deal of mischief in him (as did his brother, my grandfather, Errol. Errol incidently also fought in the war and another brother Alan Gordon Grant Taylor lost his life in WW1). I am attaching a quick bio which includes his army timeline, have not updated from RFC/RAF records. Still will keep scratching to find more. taylor, dallas bio.docx
  2. This is not Cuthbert Dallas Grant Taylor. He did survive the war, discharged 1919 and lived in Auckland, New Zealand working at least until 1928 as an Accountant. He drops out of electoral rolls after that. The family does have him shrouded somewhat in mystery and romantic stories but little that isn't anecdotal. He was however a well loved Gt Uncle to our family. I have attached the only photo we have of Dallas (as he was known)
