    Hello. Sorry if this is a little late, I just stumbled upon this question on the internet. The answer is Douglas (aka Hank) Iveson was Robert (Bob) Iveson's father. Tony Iveson is no relative. I can tell you this with quite a bit of authority as Robert Iveson is my father, Douglas Iveson was my grandfather. Someone I think points out that my father is Robert Douglas which might point to them being related. This is right and is a bit of a family tradition; my second name is Robert, my son's second name is my first name etc. I'm not sure if the question was leading towards something but both my grand father and my father retired as Group Captains. If you have any questions let me know but I know a lot more about my father's career than my grand father's.

    Regards

    Pete Iveson
