John Kenneth Grahame Clifton was born in Plymouth on 20th October 1918, his family moved to Taunton in 1928 and he was educated at Taunton School 1927-38. Throughout his service he had been known as Kenneth or Ken and 253 added the nickname 'Curly'. On the 31st August he claimed a Heinkel 111 destroyed. At 13.35 hours on 1st September 1940 253 Squadron were scrambled from Kenley to intercept a large formation of Do17s and Me110s crossing the channel between Dover and Dungeness. Just north of Dungeness Clifton, in Hurricane P5185, was hit by return enemy fire and he was wounded. A Staplehurst resident, the late Bill Collins who lived Clapper Lane in 1940, was working on his land and could see tiny dots which he knew were aircraft high in the sky over towards the Tenterden area. He watched one of these dots fall out of the sky and get bigger and bigger. It came towards him and at one point he thought the aircraft would crash into his bungalow. He could clearly see the pilot who appeared to be slumped over the controls. The aircraft banked sharply to port before crashing into Grave Lane, Staplehurst.
