Wm Barry Needham, in 1941 this spry 21yr old Canadian found himself in England flying a Spitfire MkV in the RCAF. On 7 July, 1944, he was shot down by flak and became a prisoner of war (liberated 40days later by Patton’s 3rd Army). In between he sung E-boats, shot down a FW-190, straffed locomotives and with a fellow Canadian, chased off two FW-190s from a crippled B-17 whose crew was baling out by attacking the fighters even though he was out of ammo. He was and is just a regular guy who at age 95 (96 in 45 days) is living history sharing his story.
