Notes for Roy COURLANDER
A "traitor" according to John Nicholls - photocopy of family tree from Liz Hulsman.
Most likely he was Roy Courlander, who had served in the New Zealand armed forces , became a POW before joining the British Free Corps of the German military. Roy Nicolas Courlander was born in London on 6 December 1914. His mother, Edith Cater, married Leonard Henry Courlander, a cinematographer, in London on 4 November 1920. They divorced in 1933 and Roy went to live with Leonard Courlander in the New Hebrides. In November 1938 he arrived in New Zealand and found work as a clerk with the Land and Income Tax Department in Wellington. He died in 1979
Another history of the BFC makes a passing reference to a Leonard Courlander persuading somebody to join.
