Hello, I am researching Willis Butler, an RAF Reserve Leading Aircraftman. He was taken prisoner in Java in March 1942, and died in November of that year. Records show he had Beriberi and dysentery. He was my great uncle (mother's mother's brother) and was 22 when he died. He was from Ilkeston in Derbyshire, and ironically had never travelled anywhere but is now buried in Jakarta. We did not know what had happened to him, other than he was captured by the Japanese, until recently when we found out where he was grave was, and then managed to trace more information about him (mainly via 'Findmypast') once we knew he was in Java. He was in Jakarta/Batavia Branch Camp 3. My mother cried despite not knowing him, because she wished her mother had known what had become of him. Heartbreakingly, I found that his medals and photograph were auctioned in London in 2015. I wish I had known. If anyone knows anything of him I would be grateful, but equally I am happy that we found what became of him and where his final resting place is.
