Strange was flying a FE2b from 11 Squadron on the 31 March 1917 when he was shot down with 2/Lt W G T Clifton.

 

I would like to know where he lived; does any one know where Strange was from?

Hi Huck,
I believe the following fits your man...
 
Name: Leslie Arthur T Strange
Oct-Nov-Dec  1894 
District: Lewisham 
Volume: 1d  Page: 1171 
 
In 1901 he was living with his parents, Arthur M and Margaret at 70 Granville Park, Lewisham, London
 
In 1911 it looks like he was away at school in Steyning, Sussex.  His parents are in Lewisham.
 
Marriage Jul-Aug-Sept 1921 to: Marjorie Haley or Clegg 
Wandsworth
Volume: 1d Page: 1447
 
From his medal card, he was living at Whincroft, Woodside Lane, Ryton, Co. Durham most probably in 1924.
 
 
Regards,
K

Kass,
 
Many thanks for the reply, if you are right and I have no reason to belive that you are not.  I have not found the right man. 
 
One other item, if it is not going to cost you any money, could you look up the medal card for J Bedford s/n 10622.  I have a copy of the front from the NA but I would be interested if there is an address on the other side.
 
Many thanks

Kass,
 
You did find the right man! Leslie Arthur Trew Strange was a member of the Royal Aero Club and his record card confirms that his home address was  in West Byfleet.
Excellent stuff!

Kass,
 
Many thanks It was a long shot.  Strange - If you have a look at my earlier post asking about the identification of the pow's he is the man 4th from the left back row.
