Putting all of Walter Neil Dove’s pictures and his logbook online is a way to reach out and to share information with relatives of airmen who were part of RCAF No. 403 Squadron.
Flight Lieutenant Tommy Todd was the first airman known by someone who wrote a comment.
His best friend Tony Cannell wrote us last month, and last week, Tommy Todd’s grandson wrote a comment when he saw pictures of his grandfather.
F/L Aitchison is another pilot’s name found in Greg’s grandfather’s logbook.
He was forced landed near Deist on December 31, 1944.

Flight Lieutenant Edward Grant Aitchison’s name would appear later in the logbook.
