    Default Donald Campbell and Harry Pool ?

    Hello,
    I research were the two airmen. Escapees and hidden in Brittany in early 1942. Can be POW later.
    Donald Campbell and Harry Pool. They said New Zealanders and English?

    To the best of my knowledge neither man was a New Zealand airman.

    In the newspaper article it is written, my grandfather had his home to two airmen, an English and a New Zealander I think, therefore not on their nationality.
    Two members of the family with his grandfather were denounced and arrested by the Germans on 5 and 6 March 1942. François Marie was sentenced to death on 27 July 1942. His body was never found, no news of grandfather .
    There is a photo with the two airmen dressed in civilian clothes.

    Can you give us any more information?

    I have checked all the escape and evasion reports and the list of Bomber command POW's and cannot find someone who would match.

    I will have a look at Kew to see if they filled out a Liberation Questionnaire.

    Unfortunately for the moment we have nothing more to information from the family.
    Family where two airmen were was located in the town of Langoat east of Lannion.
    Photo the third man with the tie on the left is called the aviator as New Zealanders. The second is the fourth from the right.
