    Tuesday 15 December 1936 , Nottingham Evening Post , Nottinghamshire, England
    R.A.F. BOMBER OVERTURNS. PILOT OFICER'S ESCAPE FORCED LANDING.


    An R.A.F. bombing plane crashed at ' Stringers Common, Worplesdon,
    near Guildford, to-day. There was only one pilot in the machine—Pilot-Officer
    J. L. Crisp, who was flying from Brooklands to Worthy Down—
    he was uninjured. The machine made a forced landing ... Apparently this was a ferry flight and a pictureof him and the upturned planes is in Leicester Chronicle - Saturday 19 December 1936 Picture Hind K6643 later W/O 31 March 1938 - K File says ferry flight as well- Is this the same Crisp ? I have him ex F./Sgt. Crisp. J. L., -> Commissioned A/PO 1935? https://aviation-safety.net/wikibase/207377


    J. L. Crisp, to No. 18 (B) Squadron, Bircham Newton, 11.5.36.

    Acting Pilot Officer.—J. L. Crisp, to No. 49 (B) Squadron, Bircham Newton, 22.6.36.

    John Lawrence Crisp
    b. Q2 1917 (MMS King) Reg Farnham 2a 227
    Enlisted 748440 in Block 740000-759999 RAFVR Pilots. Issued from 01-Jan-37 to 03-Jan-40. TNA AIR 78/39/7 I-113 R2C1
    21 Nov 1941 748440 Flt Sgt J L Crisp Cmd Plt Off(p) RAFVR GD (112540) [LG].
    d. 8 Jun 1942 as Plt Off aged 25 – fits Birth Reg above. Officer s/n given in CWGC (and elsewhere) as 37387(?) – which I can’t make come up on the LG!
    Something don’t compute! Using logic, there are either two John Lawrence Crisp, or John Lawrence Crisp had two periods of RAF service which have become mixed up at some stage?

    Same guy..He was Court Martial in 1937 while with 18 Sqn (I assume) - I wonder what for and dismissed - he rejoined as RAFVR and later re-commissioned which explains the service number (he took his old one) - I was hoping I would add this this reply to the thread below but it did not work...
