    Default Looking for information on a Peter Clark

    All I have is that he born June 1909 in Bordeaux and is believed to have been lost over France around 30 Sept 1944. There is nothing in Chorley's (unless I missed it - which does happen). CWGC site lists one Peter Clark lost when flying with 418 Sqdn RCAF.
    Also it is believed that he had a connection with Tangmere.
    Any info greatly apreciated.

    Charles Peter Clark, Service Nš 106151 perhaps?

    Lost, aged 35, in Lysander V9749 MA-M of 161 Sqn missing en route from Le Bourget (Paris) to RAF Tempsford, September 29/30 1944. The CWGC website has him as Mentioned in Despatches.

    Simon,
    very many thanks for that and I now feel somewhat foolish. I have most of the 161 Sqdn records and did not spot him. My excuse is that he was a passenger on the flight.
    Again,
    many thanks.

    Hoping somebody will still be reading this old thread. My wife's Grandfather was lost on this same flight. He was [FONT=Helvetica][SIZE=3]Major John "Jack" Saunders. Any additional info would be appreciated. What we have been told was that it was lost, most likely in a storm coming back from France. I do have a photo and info of the flight over TO France, which also includes Perer Clark.
