    Default DIZZY Desmond Cooper, info and picture wanted

    Has anyone a photograph of Desmond Dizzy Cooper, who I understand was pictured in the book To the ends of the Earth, the story 0f 204 Sqd. I have his career details while a test pilot with the MAEE RAFHelensburgh when he flew the Spitfire floatplane. If anyone has the book could you have a look. Thank you.

    Hello,

    I think the book you're looking for, is actually; To The Ends of the Earth 210 Squadron's Catalina Years/Mike Seymour & Bill Balderson/Pembroke Dock:Paterchurch Publications,1999.

    A fuzzy group photo of "Dizzy" Cooper's crew appears on p.28, with the following (uinformative) caption:

    Flight Lieutenant Desmond Cooper and crew (Source Desmond Cooper). There are ten airmen in the photograph. Of the two (in the centre), with wings, one is a tallish chap, the other (holding a camera!), is somewhat shorter.

    Sorry, no scanner.

    Col.

    Col,
    You don't need a scanner. Just take a photograph with your mobile phone.
