Subject: Flying to Lundy Island

I am trying to research the flight made by my mother, Mary Crocker, from a small North Devon airfield to Lundy Island in the mid-1930s. She always claimed that she was one of the first people to put a plane down on the island.
Have you any idea where I might find more information?
Best regards,
Mike Ashman

Atlantic Coast Air Services started flying between Barnstaple Airport (later RAF Chivenor and now Royal Marine Base Chivenor) and Lundy Island in 1938, perhaps it was on one of these services?

I have a book at home, entitled Lundy by Air, which details all this. Unfortunately, I'm not at home for two qweeks, but will try to remember to post the info when I get there. There were regular flights in the 30s and the first landing was during WW1.
