Does anyone know where I might obtain a photograph or other information about the above pilot.
The only information I have is that he was the pilot of the British Airways Electra which flew Neville Chamberlain to Munich in 1938 and was awarded the OBE.
He also appears in a few articles in the times around 1937-1939 and is mentioned in an article in Flight magazine from 1957.
Other than that and his date of birth I really do not know where to start.
HE IS RELATED TO MY MOTHER (AND HENCE ME).
My mother has a clip from the news paper where he was endorsing a watch.
Ill see if I can find it
I think he was my grand mothers cousin?
Ill ask my Mum tommorow when I see her in the hospital.
It is the only relative I know of that I can proudly call a hero.
Her maiden name is Tomlin
Thanks for your reply.
This is all very exciting, your grandmother must be Ialla Flowerday (not too sure of the spelling)?
If so then I have a few people who would dearly love to contact you and your mum.
Victors son for one and my aunt Beryl, your cousin through her mum Victors sister Beatrice Flowerday.
I would love to see the newspaper clip.
My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org
If you send me an email I can let you have a picture of Victor - there aren't many and they aren't very good.
Look forward to hearing from you.
