    Default What is a Diver?

    Hi,
    Reference in a 1944 combat report to shooting down a "Diver" into the sea, any ideas as to what a diver could be. Is a Dive Bomber too obvious.

    Default A Diver

    Hi Alan

    May I respectfully refer you to my book 'Diver! Diver! Diver!' in which you will find a record of Diver claims made by the RAF etc during 1944-1945!

    The Diver was the V-1 Flying Bomb perhaps better known to the public as the Doodlebug.

    Cheers
    Brian

    Brian,
    They say you learn something new every day and thanks to you i have today, never heard of the term used for V1's before. And for your time, there's a copy of the report on it's way.
    Many thanks........Alan
