On August 9thsome B went to Brest for one more bombing, and not certainly the last. I have found two accounts, coming from two different people, and am trying to match up these information to know what really happened, so to complete this aircraft file. What I already know about it: Attack on the German fortress at Brest.
Lt Beesons ship was seriously damaged, or believed to be.
Beeson landed on one or our strips on the French coast, and he and the remainder of his crew managed to repair their airplane and return to base. Another one, back in his flying uniform, after he got back his chute where he had it hidden in a stack.
A last one with his family in the USA. All pictures were offered by the Abily family, from this nearest farm close to which he landed. Around 8 pm, for groups of 6 two-engines aircraft, some Marauders I think, Flying at about meters high, coming from Brest, following the Elorn River.
When passing just in front of us, a bomber suddenly catch fire. For a few seconds, long flames with fume, then he falls vertically.
A few moment later,on the same road, at the same altitude, five groups of six in perfect formation. Very accurate Flak again. Just after they have passed, everyone is looking at a parachutist falling rapidly with an important balancing movement.
Close to the ground, hopefully, it seems the balancing slow down, as the going down speed. No more can we see him again when he disappears behind the trees, in Saint-Yves direction.
During this time, on the Lannoc, our cousins the the Lissillour, saw another airman landing around Dirinon.
Any photo of these crews or aircraft. A way to get in touch with any Sqn who took part to that August 9th raid to Brest.
Many thanks for any help you can provide. Gildas Gildas, 9th August ' Lt R L Beeson - pilot 2. On landing Sgt Chapman was taken by four French ladies to a nearby farm. From here he was taken to nearby woods, by a small French boy and told to remain hidden until dark.
At dusk a Frenchman brought him civilian clothes and took him to a house to be fed. Afterwards he was taken to a haystack where he spent the night. Just before daylight he was collected and given breakfast before being taken to another hiding place.
Henderson was also safe. Chapman requested that he should be taken to see Henderson but was advised that this was not safe there being many Germans in the proximity. There was no MACR since both men returned to their unit.+ free ebooks online.
