Lieutenant Colonel Canning was a British soldier who was kept prisoner by the Chimera in Grimsby, and was mentioned in the Intel Document "Captured".

On February 6th, 1951, Canning and his unit were captured by the Chimera during a patrol to the north of Liverpool at approximately 2:00 PM. They were transported via Carrier to a Conversion Center in Grimsby, although Canning theorized it might have been in Hartlepool. Not long after arriving, he was able to break the rusty lock on his cell, and was planning to escape. It is unknown what his eventual fate was.
