A Lad from Accrington - Flt Sgt Thomas Starkie 1918-1944 (CD017)

This volume is the story of an Accrington lad from the generation after the Accrington Pals, but from the same mould and fashioned in the same school of hard knocks. It has been painstakingly researched by John Porter who used a wide range of sources, including Ministry of Defence records and contacting contemporaries of Thomas. Sadly it echoes the stories we are getting today of our men and boys fighting, and dying, overseas. Tom is commemorated on the Air Forces Memorial at Runnymede which names over 20,000 airmen who were lost in the Second World War during operations from bases in the United Kingdom and North and Western Europe, and who have no known graves.
