Really cool, Thanks for Sharing. Found a family friend when I was a kid. Long since passed and never really talked about his experience,  all I knew from my dad is that he was a POW after being shot down and that he was a navigator.


My memory is not that clear but I do remember him wearing a tie clip or a medal and it had a sapphire or orange jewel in it. He told my Dad that only crews that had jumped out of a burning aircraft and survived got one.

Anyone have any idea on what type of medal that might be from the RCAF??
