during 1941 your great uncle and my father Douglas Barker Crabtree (616 squadron) together with a French Canadian pilot Larry Robillard escaped from France, bringing back secret plans of ammunition and fuel dumps in the Pas de Calais area. The plans were written on a cigarette paper which I still have. The RAF later destroyed all the installations. They escaped via the famous Pat O’Leary line over the Pyrenees and had some very eventful times while on the escape.
Hank’s widow Madeleine is not in good health and lives in sheltered accommodation supported by her family. Let me have your contact details and I will happily give you further information.
Please find pictures of the actual cigarette paper which was stored in the lining of a beret, picture blow ups of the same, and aerial photo of the area taken by Hurri Bomber. I do have the combat report marked SECRET but it is quite faded now.
Hope this is of interest.
