Description

Les Rutherford was part of the rear-guard defence of Dunkirk in 1940. He escaped to England in a most novel fashion and later volunteered for the Royal Air Force, becoming a bomb aimer on Lancasters.
He completed 23 operations with 50 Squadron from RAF Skellingthorpe but was shot down by a fighter on his 24th operation.
He spent the rest of the war as a prisoner of war at Stalag Luft III, the location of the famed Great Escape.
