    Lovely story and the book looks like it might be a must have!

    Hello,

    His evasion report is in WO 208/3310 # 838. While I've never been able to meet him, I talked to him over the phone, and I've a piece of the parachute he used on 8th June 1942. It was re-used to make scarves (one scarf, scarves ?) and teinted pink for this purpose.

    Indeed it might be an interesting reading.

    Joss
