On another forum "sheldonesque" supplied me with a link to a POW report of a 97 Squadron member James Gillman. The link can be seen here.


Gillman and his crew mate Kenny evaded for seven months until, from Gillman's report.

"After leaving Bordeaux, the Gestapo did an ID check and Kenny, Gillman and the Recoule's son were arrested. Mme. Campion survived the ID check and was able to relate what had happened. The whole Recoule family was arrested by the Gestapo on the following Sunday morning.

My question to the forum is, does anyone know the fate of the Recoule family?

Regards, David.
