    Default David Ivins

    My father, the late Wing Commader D.V. Ivins and his navigator, Flight Sergeant Daly of 151 squadron were shot down over Tramaine, south west of Dinard on 17-05-1943. I have spoken to witnesses of the incident and know that he was shot down by a hidden German battery next to the railway line. The aircraft crashed and exploded, killing the occupants who are now buried in a small churchyard in Dinard. I have not been able to contact Daly's relations - does anybody know of them? Does anyone recall my father? Thanks in advance. 219 Normoss Road, Blackpool - 01253 392499.

    Dear David,
    I am researching my Uncle F/O David Sparrow 151 Sqdn. Your Father flew on Ops with him including his last on 19th April 1943. I am afraid I have nothing to offer you, only information on David. I wonder if you have any photos etc of that time ? I know a fair amount of David's fate but little of his time flying.
    Hoping this finds you or any other person for that matter that might be able to help.
