Flying Officer Peter "Butch" Clark 418 Squadron (d.18 July 1944)

from left to right: Brown, Lissen, Kerr, Clark of 418 Sqd.

Looking for information about F/O Peter Clark. He was a navigator with 418 Squadron, flying Mosquitos. On 18 July 1944 he and his pilot, Jim Kerr, RCAF, went missing. Clark´s body was later found washed ashore in southern Sweden and he is buried at Malmo Eastern Municipal cemetery in Sweden. I work at the Malmo City Archives and am writing about the 10 allied airmen who are buried here. Clark is one of them and the one it is most difficult to find any information about. If you know anything at all, please contact me. I know he was married a couple of months before he died; his wife´s maiden name was Betty Ring. She lived at 12 or 14 Princes Square, W.2. at least during 1944-1947. But then where did she go? Thanks in advance for any help.
