    -----------------------------
    You will see my father is mentioned in the 6th paragraph from the end.  I had no idea that he was involved in ferrying planes to Spain for use during the Spanish civil war.  Another site Martin referred me to showed the registry with the owners of the plane and obviously my father had sold it on to someone else before it crashed near Redhill in 1947.

    Yet another link he gave me was the following, showing my father as a pilot with Surrey Flying Services.  I guess this could be the time when he did the daily paper run with British newspapers to Paris and French newspapers back to England that he often used to talk about.
