Some Facts
During the last few years of his life, he became notorious around his home village of Mursley for flying very low in his Tiger Moth. On one occasion (actually in 1957 when he was much younger), he narrowly survived a crash landing in a field near his house.
David's first wife, Mary Lindsay Hiddingh, committed a murder-suicide on December 2, 1943 by taking her 2 children Michael and John Hiddingh by the arm and jumping out of a hotel window in New York killing herself at the age of 34 and Michael age 8 and John age 6. She had been suffering from depression by the loss of her first husband A.G. Hiddingh who was killed in action during World War II and on December 1, 1941 she was hoping to join David in England, but while in New York City soon learned she couldn't bring the kids which led to her murder-suicide.
Served in the air force.
Father of producer and 1st assistant director Henry Tomlinson and former actor James Adam Tomlinson.
Retired from acting in 1979.
