Bio / Text:

< = expand >
Pilot was shot down in 1941 and spent the next years in POW camps. On the infamous march (or POWs) at the end of the war, he managed to escape, and the article to the right describes how a disabled German man gave him and his comrades women's clothes, which they then used in their successful escape through to France, where they met a Canadian tank crew. Youtube to the right shows the moments after capture. Articles online show last name as Arnott, Spitfire database (and some online forums) show Arnett. Both indicate POW.
