Update for Site ... AJ-N Harry E. O'Brien

Harry's Lancaster was shot down on the first sortie after the Dambuster raid piloted by L. Knight over Holland. Harry and the crew bailed at 500 ft. AGL while Knight struggled to keep the plane in the air. Harry spent 18 months as a POW in Germany and returned to Canada to marry and have 8 children. He became a noteable and well respected individual in the furniture industry and died at the age of 63 in 1985.
He rarely spoke of the Dambuster raid or his time as a POW. The effects of those memories pushed him to perform to his very best, and for that his friends and family will always remember him.
