One response to “France

  1. Droniou daniel

    French – I am looking for evasions with the help of Shelburn escape net, the chief of which was Paul François Campinchi.
    The first evaded pilot with his help was Reginal Smith.
    Thanks for help to fond names of such evaders from Bonaparte beach.

    I am advised that a good source of information is the book, “RAF Evaders, The Comprehensive Story of Thousands of Escapers and Their Escape Lines, Western Europe, 1940-1945,” by Oliver Clutton-Brock, London: Grubb Street, 2009.
