Records about Rajah from Peter Stolk, Netherlands
This Asian male arrived ca.1937 and was found death after an air raid. Presumably the "Belfast Blitz" of April 1941. The decision had already been made to destroy him. When I asked my contact about Kuka he wrote this: Jonas' website makes no mention of Rajah and I'm sure this must be the same animal (despite the difference in dates). So perhaps you can give Kuka, http://www.elephant.se/database2.php?elephant_id=750, a second name.
