  • He was to testify at the court-martial of an enlisted man he overheard in a pub, talking about classified information in public. That switch saved his life.

  • Small correction, my grandfather (second from left, front row) Thomas Paxton Sherwood was the original copilot on this crew. He was replaced at the last minute on 2/22/44 with Rowland Evans. I have been unable to find a photo of Evans, but this photo shows my grandfather.
