Mission Marathon - Operation Sherwood
This list of Freteval evaders began with the list on Frank Haslam's rafinfo website but has been updated with information from a variety of sources, particularly Edouard Reniere, John Howes and Oliver Clutton-Brock. Click here to see Frank's original page which has more information on many of the men. For the story of Freteval see Oliver's 2009 book ‘RAF Evaders' which also has more detail on many of the evaders as well as information on their helpers. Click here for the Reseau Comete website which also has more details of the evaders. The numbers in brackets refer to the men's debrief reports : MI9 or IS9 in the case of the British and Commonwealth servicemen, and MIS-X reports for the Americans. This list is not definitive so if you think there are any mistakes then please don't hesitate to contact me.
