"Across an Ocean and
Time" is the biography of Harry Nash, who was born in England but spent
his later years in Canada. It deals in particular with his WW2
experiences, based on memoirs and photos he left. He was an armourer
with RAF 247 (China British) squadron, which was staffed with a high
percentage of men released from HM Prisons, whose sentences were
commuted to "for the duration". Some of the stories had loose ends.
Attempts to understand or at least find plausible explanations for these
led to the novel "Thursday Afternoon" (J C Nash, 2012). This and two
sequels as well as other materials can be found at
