Have you seen this site?- perhaps someone there can shed some light on him- "Prior to WW II Strachan lived with his parents at Tara, Bouldnor." Names of 2 informants listed and contact link at bottom of page.

I am also trying to find Antony Peyton Ventris Strachan.
I have found him in the Sandhurst archives Name: Anthony Peyton Ventris-Strachan
Date of Birth: 24 March 1918
Father's Occupation: Lieutenant Commander, Royal Navy; retired
Date of Admission to the RMC: 29 January 1937
Unit: 1 Company RMC
Cadet Rank: Temporary Corporal 26 August 1937; Sergeant 27 January 1938
Position in Order of Merit: 61/184
Date of Leaving the RMC: 2 July 1938
Date of Commission into the Hampshire Regiment: 25 August 1938
Date of Publication of Commission in the London Gazette: 26 August 1938

Here he is mentioned in the London Gazette. (There is a mention of him with the service number that is also on the CWGC site in another listing in the Gazette)

London Gazette: 26 August 1938 p 5478 - Hampshire Regiment:  William Austin Frederick MAYNARD and Anthony Peyton VENTRIS STRACHAN (sic)
London Gazette 18 Feb 1941 p 958 Hampshire Regiment 1st Jan 1941 WAF Maynard (77649) A P Ventris Strachan (77650)

and on the free bmd I found this record which I thought might be him... so I would really like to hear about his birth in France if I have the wrong one here.

Births Jun 1918   Ventris Anthony P:   Mother's maiden name= Harrison Registration District= Brighton
 2b   290

I would be very interested to know anything further about him. So if anyone knows anything please post! THANKS.  :)

Looks like the parents-
Charles P. Ventris marriage July/Sept.1916 Brighton dist. to Madeline Harrison
and another child-
Ian T.P. Ventris birth Apr./June 1919 Steyning dist., Isle of Wight

Added: Sir Peyton Ventris apparently quite a well-known gentleman-

hi maypower15

thanks for the interesting message which i have now passed on to my friend in isle of wight (waitng for him to get back to me)

i thought antony dad was in the army and ended up being a major
as i did get this from the ancestry below
and this was in france around 1920s so thats why i had a feeling antony might have been born france 

British Army WWI Medal Rolls Index Cards, 1914-1920
about D A Strachan

Name: D A Strachan
[David Allan Strachan] 
Regiment or Corps: 45th Bde RGA 
~~~~~~~~

also seeing i was told antony,s parents were david and grace i just wondered just a MAYBE this could be their marriage below

Marriages Sep 1907   
~~~~~~~~
 
JOCELYN  Gladys    Rochford  4a 1204   


 
STRACHAN  David Allen    Rochford  4a 1204
