Just read this extract from this book. Abbey House & Gardens Malmesbury by Mark Child page 107. Ian Pollard was born in 1945 , some fifteen months after his parents' marriage. At the time of Ian's birth , his father , a wartime air reconnaissance pilot , was already dead at just twenty-three years old. Ian's mother always regarded her husband as a pacifist because the aeroplanes he flew were loaded with films rather than bombs. It was , Ian thought, a hypocritical point of view, since the purpose of his photographs was to enable others to come along afterwards and drop thousands of tons of bombs on the areas he had pictured. Ian spent his early years at his grandparents' council house in Cambridge. I've looked on CWGC and only chap from a PRU Sqn , aged 23 with link to Cambridge, I can find is Douglas Pollard.
