Peter Owen Denys Allcock, from Herne Hill, London, joined the RAF on a short service commission in April 1939. He completed his training, arrived at 6 OTU on 28th April 1940 and was posted to 17 Squadron on 12th May.



He was with 229 Squadron in early July. On 23rd September 23rd he was shot down whilst acting as weaver on a squadron patrol. He baled out, wounded, and after landing at Westcliff he was admitted to Southend Hospital. His aircraft, Hurricane P2789, crashed on St Mary’s Marshes, Hoo.

Allcock went with 229 to the Middle East in May 1941. On 17th December the squadron was part of the escort for Hurribombers of 80 Squadron, detailed to attack enemy vehicles near Mechili. The raid was frustrated when the British aircraft were attacked by Me109’s and Macchi 202’s.
