288216 Clerk Thomas Spring, RAF

Chailey Parish Magazine notes in October 1918 that Private T Spring is serving with the RAF.  This information is then repeated monthly up to and including July 1919.

Thomas's service record survives in AIR 79 and notes that he was 45 years and six months old when he enlisted in the RAF on the 24th August 1918. He was a stableman and carpenter by trade and was married to Emily Jane Spring (married 20th September 1897) whose address is given as Chailey Green. Thomas did not serve overseas and but it was not until 30th April 1920 that he was discharged.
