Brennan, H.


Description
Full Text

It was a glad home-coming and many friends have since enjoyed renewing acquaintance with the gallant young flier.

A letter received from headquarters by Mr. and Mrs. Brennan reads as follows:

Harold Brennan, a pilot in the R.C.A.F. was reported missing after a big air operation over Germany on April 21st, 1944 in which it was believed he was shot down somewhere over France.
Monday morning P.O. Brennan accompanied by P.O. Alfred Houston of Toronto, who was navigator on the same crew as Harold Brennan, met friends in Toronto and continued on to Lindsay.

P.O. Brennan has nothing but the kindest words to say of the people of France, who looked after him, and for the people of England. He says very little regarding his experiences.
