Herewith is the video of our interview in which Jack talks about joining the RAF, forming a crew, the Halifax bomber, his training as a wireless operator, Fishpond, the night he was shot down, evasion, and capture.

    Delighted and moved to have found this. I had the privilege of developing a friendship with Jack through our mutual involvement with Buckinghamshire Aircraft Recovery Group (BARG) in the late 90’s,
    when they had a fabulous display at Bletchley Park. I recall taking Jack to RAF Museum Hendon, and seeing him look up at the remains of Friday 13th and wondering what memories it was bringing back. He always had a spark in his eye, along with his other friends from BARG I will always remember Jack, and cherish the memories of my time with him.
