The Lt Harold Sperber from Port Clinton, OH, is a friend of mine. He was co-pilot of the Pathfinder C-47 (Chalk 4) on the Normandy mission that ingested flak on the run in between the Channel Islands and turned back out into the Channel to try to make it to England. Wound up ditching in the Channel and was shortly picked up by the HMS TARTAR. All survived. The Tribal Class destroyer HMCS HAIDA on display in Toronto was in the same screening force of four destroyers.
