John Arthur Peter McClintock attended Wellington College from 1933 to 1937 and went from there to work in London. At some point in 1939 he joined 615 Squadron, Auxiliary Air Force at Kenley and was called to serve with them full-time on 24th August 1939.
After completing his training at 3 FTS he rejoined 615 in late July. On 12th August he attacked and damaged a Me109 forcing it down east of Lewes.
On the 24th he shared in destroying a He111 but two days later was himself shot down in Hurricane R4121. He baled out and was rescued unhurt from the sea off Sheerness.
McClintock was killed on 25th November 1940, when he crashed in a Magister at Sunningdale after a wing broke away at 200 feet. P/O AJJ Truran of 615 was also killed.
They were both cremated at St John’s Crematorium, Woking.
