    Hello Steve

    David Vandervord is my uncle, alive and well aged 94!

    I was amazed to find this thread when researching his 218 Squadron history, after visiting him on Saturday where he lives in Southend. As an aviation enthusiast myself, I have always been fascinated by my uncle's flying service and have recently introduced to him an author, Steve Bond, who is writing a book about the Wellington. They met last Wednesday and David was able to provide a number of useful stories and notes.

    I took the opportunity to photograph some of David's memorabilia, including several pages from his logbook, one of which shows the raid on Hamburg of 13th March 1941 aboard Wellington R1448 when he was wounded.

    I look forward to hearing from you.

    KRs

    Rich is on Facebook. I showed him the thread. Since his login/pw is not working he asked to pass on these details
    In the intervening years, sadly my uncle has died, age 95. If you are able to reach Steve on my behalf, he is most welcome to contact me on my email richard.vandervordAToutlookDOTcom
