    I am trying to find out where he came from and where did he go to after 55 OTU as I can not find any more information for Sgt.John Thomas Strickland,service number 922262.Any help would be great.

    Regards,Philip

    The ORB isn't of much use, other than his accident in Jan 42 it only records the barest details about posting in and out so there is no telling when he arrived and from where and which posting out he is included in.

    Default Strickland

    I already have the details about his forced landing from the 55 OTU ORB.It is obviously the case that he survived the war but I can not find any more details about him so any details from the forum members would be great.

    Peter suggested in 2010 that he was born in 1918 and died in 1996. If you get that mans death cert and apply for the RAF service record for Strickland 922262, with the person dead over 20 years I think you can get a redacted service file - IF Strickland 1918-1996 is the same as Strickland 922262.

    Ancestry.com shipping lists show a

    23 year old Sgt J T Strickland arriving in Liverpool Oct 21, 1941 among a group of Sgt's from Canada. The ship was the Rangitata. This might be him.

    The John Thomas Strickland who died in 1996 is also found in the 1950's travelling to Takoradi in Ghana, as a business man with his family. Wife Beatrice. At least three daughters. He married in the UK in late 1945, you can find the marriage index on freebmd.org.uk

    Philip, Hi,
    Assuming that the guy in my earlier is yr guy?
    This afternoon, quite by chance, I was searching for something entirely different on GE when I came across Alton House, Poplar!! It's still there (or its WW2 replacement is still there?!). It's a block of flats. LCC (London County Council as was) would have been the then Landlords(?), and may have details of any tenancies of #16 - assuming they are in their archives, and can be found?
    Tap in the right places and you never know what might fall out of the woodwork!!!!!!

    Default John Thomas Strickland 922262

    Hi-I have posted this thread before or I am seeking any details for this RAF pilot John Thomas Strickland,service number 922262 of which I cannot find more details for him including in the London Gazette.He was training in No.55 OTU at RAF Usworth and he made a wheels-up forced landing in a Hurricane on the 2.1.1942 somewhere around Castleside near Consett,County Durham and again I cannot pinpoint where he came down due to not being able to find a local eyewitness.I have the A.M.Form 1180 or the aircraft accident card for this incident which just states the location as Castleside near Consett.Can any forum members provide more information as to where J.T.Strickland went to after 55 OTU.Also hopefully an AIR 81 file might exist if he had minor injuries and this could give a more detailed location for his Castleside forced landing.Any leads after his training in 55 OTU would be great.

    Regards,Philip
