This was in my parent's album, don't know who it is (maybe was told years ago but if so, have forgotten). It could be one of the Kelly's, I was told my dad joined the army with one of his cousins, Jack, I think.

Looks like R.A.F not army?

Thanks for that Dave - not familiar with forces uniforms! Then it couldn't be my dad's cousin. They were in the T.A. and Lancs Queens Regiment. No idea at all then who this is and my parents aren't around anymore to ask.

Clarified - is one of my dad's cousins, Joe Kelly brother to Jack; Joe was in the airforce, Jack in the army.

Without the sleeve being enlarged it looks like a Canadian signature above the stripes ,perhaps this may strike a cord
