AMAZING WORLD WAR TWO STORIES OF COURAGE AND ADVENTURE

The renewed interest in WW1 and WW2 arising from all the upcoming anniversaries reminds us to review some of the extraordinary stories of courage and adventure told by those who actually experienced them.  Just for one great example, on 8th December 1942 Stan Hope was the navigator/camera operator in an RAF Mosquito on a photo reconnaissance mission to Austria. When the aircraft developed a fault the pilot decided they could not reach Britain and so he and Stan would both have to bail out and the plane would be set to crash. They were over German occupied Belgium, and Stan landed by parachute in the countryside. He had visited its capital Brussels before the war, and even spoke a little French, and so he headed for this city in the hope that he'd find safe refuge there from the occupying German troops.  Now look it up and see Stan tell his story first hand..........
