    Default Air Mechanic 1st Class, 8324 George Clark

    I'm trying to find out who the parents of 8324 George Clark, born c.1890 London, died 30/01/1919 were.

    Enlisted: Royal Flying Corp 26/07/1915, Royal Air Force 01/04/1918 (Buried / Commemorated: Tourcoing (Pont-Neuville) Communal Cemetery, France)

    81st Wing

    Originally enlisted in the Royal Garrison Artillery (01/11/1909)

    Husband of Maria Clark of 31 Portland Street, Fareham, Hampshire (married 18/02/1914 at Fareham Register Office).

    His father on the marriage certificate states George Clark (deceased), General Labourer.

    This is all that I have. Any enlightening help very much appreciated!

    Hello

    Some matches on the 1901 census, with one possible match of a George Clark, working as a General Labourer, who has a son named George, living in London area: George Clark, aged 35 and Elizabeth Clark, aged 33, living in Risdon Street, Rotherhithe, with five children including George, aged 11, born in Rotherhithe.

    It's a bit on the thin side, but a possibility...

    Regards

    Simon

    Thanks Simon, this one is proving very difficult to tie down.

    Hi

    According to his service record, he was born in Poplar.

    He was a driver and was never a AM1, he was transferred to the RFC as an AM2 which became AM3 on transferring to the RAF and AC2 in 1 Jan 1919 when the RAF revised its airman rank structure.

    He died in 10 CCS from influenza and broncho-pneumonia

    Thanks for this Malcolm.

    I don't suppose that you have a copy of this record that I could please have a look at?

    Thanks!
