    Default P/O J R Donald, Sgt J P Dieringer (USA) R57754and Sgt HV Macrae - Any info on these g

    These chaps were all involved in a minor accident in Hampden X3061 on 13th April 1942 while at 14 OTU. The other crew member, Sgt Lawrence R.G Aus.403192 was killed later that year in W4306. The other three crew members are being very stubbon and I can find almost nothing about them. From a Canadian Postal website I believe Dieringer may have returned to Canada. The other two I can find nothing about.

    Donald must have done a tour before this accident as he had 546 hrs on all types and was staff. He did his DFTS at Cranfield passing out on 16th Sept 1940. None seem to have died, turned up at all in the gazette or on medal roles or google. Have any of you run across them?

    Hello,

    Dieringer likely John Philip Dieringer; born Everett, Washington 23 April 1917; deceased Los Angeles, California 2 June 1986.

    The Victoria Times-Colonist edition of 18 July 1941 has him graduating from No. 2 Wireless School, Calgary. The same newspaper has him graduating from No 5 B&GS, Dafoe 20 August 1941.

    In his border crossing documentation for 21 December 1945 he's listed as a store clerk at No. 10 Repair Depot, Calgary.

    Regards,

    Dave
