Colin Anthony Gordon Clark, from Johannesburg, South Africa joined the RAF on a short service commission in April 1939. He joined 266 Squadron in October 1939 and was with the Fighter Interception Unit by 25th June 1940. On 13th October Clark was flying Blenheim L6805, operating as a target aircraft for an AI-equipped Boston. Due to an error in the use of the fuel cocks, he experienced engine failure and made a crash-landing near Lancing College. The aircraft was written off but he was unhurt.

Clark was killed on 30th October 1941, as a Flight Lieutenant with 137 Squadron. Newly-formed and equipped with Whirlwinds, the squadron had flown its first operational sortie on 24th October, attacking the railway sidings at Landernean near Brest.

Clark was lost when he went into the sea whilst on an operational flight in P7091. He was 28 and is buried in St Michael’s churchyard, Geldeston, Norfolk.
