    Default R.V.D. Smith

    Hi guys

    I require some information on Pilot Officer RVD Smith, believed to have been a Blenheim pilot before joining 69 Squadron at Malta on Marylands in mid 1941. I know literally nothing about him apart from his initials!

    Please help!

    Cheers
    Brian

    Brian,
    Chase him up in the LG using 89088. Not a lot - but it's a start

    Many thanks, Peter

    It was his Christian name that I was really seeking.

    Cheers

    Following Peter's advice his names appear to be Ronald Vincent Dale Smith. LG Issue 35042, page 279.

    Hi, I know this is an old thread and that you just wanted his christian name, but RVD Smith was my dad. I wondered why you wanted to know anything about him; I have very little information about him from that time so am curious as to what the context is.

    Thank you.

    Hi Julia

    Apologies! I have only just seen your enquiry in relation to your Dad.

    He is featured in my latest book - 'Marylands over Malta' - which has just been published. I have a few copies available should you or any other Forum members require one. 15.00 plus postage (2.80 UK) Contact me at briancullauthor@fsmail.net

    However, the embarrassing news is that he appears in the book as 'Roland'. I'm not sure how the error was made, and I do apologise.

    Best wishes
    Brian
