Remembering the Telegraphist Air Gunners
Wartime Heritage Remembers WWII Veteran David Kenneth Davies (1923-2010) September 10, 2010 David K Davies, PO(A) TAG3, passed away September 9, 2010. Ken was born on 25 June 1923, he served as a Telegraphist Air Gunner in the Royal Navy during the Second World War (See the news item from December 2010 for additional detail) and is from Stevington in Bedford, England. He was the Secretary of the Telegraphist Air Gunners Association (TAGA). Ken Davies was a friend of the Wartime Heritage Association and was involved in sharing some of his wartime experiences and historical information, which contributed to the Association’s wartime theatrical stage musical productions. It was an honour to have known him and he will be remembered by all those with Wartime Heritage that had the opportunity to meet Ken during the Telegraphist Air Gunners Association's (TAGA) events and Annual Memorial Weekends in Lee-On-Solent, Hampshire, UK between 2004 and 2007. Ken was the Wartime Heritage Association's first real connection to the Telegraphist Air Gunners Association in 2003 when, from Yarmouth, Nova Scotia, we were attempting to connect with the TAG's in England and explore the possibility of performing for these Veterans; many of whom had trained in Yarmouth during the war. He proved to be an invaluable liaison in coordinating our British Time to Remember Performance Tours from (2004-2007) and his assistance and support made the whole venture possible. The family has advised that the funeral service takes place at St Mary's Church, Stevington, Bedford on Wednesday 22nd September at 12 noon. Family flowers only please donations for Macmillan Nurses, Bedfordshire may be sent to Arnolds Funeral Service, 48 Roff Avenue, Bedford 01234 359529 He will be missed by our members and remembered always. We extend our sincere condolences to his wife Barbara, daughter Elizabeth and Grandchildren Anna and Joshua, the rest of his family, and TAGA friends.
