Now we know!
Now we know F/L Walter Neil Dove’s nickname!
Luc found it.
F/L. Wally Dove is mentioned in the ORB of 403 Squadron (AIR27/1784) as “one of our most popular members of the squadron”. He had to make a forced landing when his engine cut on 11/02/1945 , flying Spitfire SM251.
We know Wally had given nicknames to almost everyone… Jug, Rip, Gil…
Greg was quite surprise to learn his grandpa’s nickname and he posted this comment…
Wally, That’s the first time I heard that name.
Well Greg, tbere is always a first time.
