An appeal for information about John Murdo McLeod MacDonald. RAF Flight Sergeant in World War Two, who hails from Millport.


Dear sir,

I wonder if, via your readership, I could further my research into the above airman, who hailed from Millport.

In January 1939, John MacDonald survived a flying accident near my home in South Wales while training to be a radio operator/navigator with the RAF.

Sadly, in 1941 he was lost on operations with the air force and is today remembered on the RAF’s Runnymede Memorial near Windsor, London. I believe he is also commemorated locally on the Millport cenotaph.

With a view of finding out more about Flight Sergeant MacDonald, I’d be grateful if anyone who knew his family to contact me.


Thank you for your anticipated help.
