SWAIN, Ivor William
Sgt. Swain died during operations in Northern Ireland.
Ivor Swain was a well respected Sgt in 8 Alma Commando Battery, 29 Commando RA. He was killed when his Land Rover patrol was called out to investigate a reported incident. They drove into a blacked out articulated lorry which had been deliberately parked across the road with a white stripe painted up the side so that it looked like the road itself.*Sources AFM ROH * James Walton, 95&29 Cdo.
