I'm not sure if I read something about this guy on here, if I did, I couldn't find it(MODs feel free to move this)

Anyhoo

The Great Escaper (in two ways) Sqn Ldr Jimmy James gets a flypast at his dispatching.

Nice touch I thought. Well done the junior service.

Good stuff on the fly-past. What a cracking bloke he was too. Rest in peace good sir.

Jimmy James Obit:
“Jimmy” James was one of 76 officers who escaped from Stalag Luft III on the night of March 24, 1944, and was fortunate not to be among the 50 executed on Hitler’s order on recapture. He was sent instead to Sachsenhausen concentration camp from where he tunnelled his way out, only to be caught again after 14 days on the run.
