    Default Jimmy (James) Harrowing ?

    Hello,
    According to a report by the French resistance. On the night of May 11 to 12, 1944, a British aircraft hit by flak, an English aviator, Jimmy (James) Harrowing second pilot on board came down by parachute.
    It was recovered in the municipality of La Montagne (Loire-Atlantique). In civilian clothes he was sent to a network of Duty along with the English captain named Nick Boddington for their repatriation to the UK.
    I research that was Jimmy (James) Harrowing and loss or absence of a aircraft on the night of May 11 to 12.
    Cordialement,
    Regards,
    Mit freundlichem Gruß,

    Dan

    Hello,

    On the night of 11/12-6-1944 (Op: Nantes), 104534 F/L Robert Anthony BODDINGTON DFC RAFVR, and 618316 Sgt Jack HARROWING RAFVR, baled out of No.635 Sqn Lancaster III ND965. The aircraft returned safely to base. Hence, no BCL entry.

    See:RAF Evaders/Clutton-Brock. pp.351 & 372.
