Dave sadly passed away on the 24th April 2020 after a brief illness. Dave joined the RAF in 1962 and trained as a photographer, he served for 22 years during which time he was stationed at Wyton, Wittering, St Mawgan and Wattisham, he also enjoyed tours in Cyprus, Germany and Malta. After he left the service Dave and his wife Norma spent many happy years travelling the country in their narrow boat. Dave was also a member of the RAFPA and he and Norma attended several reunions. Dave was always positive about life and everyone who met him remarked how happy and friendly he was.

Don Lambert That is so sad. Dave and me were on 543 Sqdn together around 67/68 time. Had some great times on 543 Sqdn and in the NAFFI pigs bar. He always had a big smile on his face. I think him and his wife spent many years travelling around in a longboat. Wish I could attend his funeral. RIP Dave a really great bloke.
