    Default W/Cdr John Rollinson DFC 38 Sqdn & 630 Sqdn

    Please can anybody help,
    we're seeking a photo of W/Cdr John Rollinson who had served with 614 Squadron 1938/39, he completed a tour by the end of 1941 as flight commander and later CO of 38 Squadron on Malta and was killed in Jan 1944 as CO of 630 Squadron.

    thanks

    PeteS, Hi,
    John Dudley Rollinson (90391 RAuxAF) married a Campbell in 1943. There was progeny. She would be only 75 today (and possibly on the Elect Reg of Leeds and Scarborough). Up to you to do the digging!

    Thanks Peter
    I think she settled in Canada and I have had little luck in tracing her.

    Hi Pete,

    If she was "formerly of Blackpool" there is a story in the 27 July 1949 issue of the Calgary Herald of two British girls, Jean Rollinson (a teacher) and Julie Long Seed, formerly of Brighton (a nurse) who having met in Montreal hitch hiked across Canada.

    Jean is described as having come to Canada 2 August 1948. Given there is a daughter shown from the Rollinson/Campbell union I'm not sure it's her.

    If you PM me your email I'll send you the page, if wanted.

    Regards,

    Dave
