Memories of Service 1 - Harold Bunny Burrows

Web (Full Length) – 2015

Serving as an air force navigator during World War II, Harold 'Bunny' Burrows experienced his share of excitement. After enlisting as a 20-year-old, he began navigating on bombing runs in Sterling, Lancaster and Mosquito class bombers. In this half-hour interview he reflects on his lost compatriots, and dealing with one's mortality on high risk bombing runs over Germany and Italy. After learning that the interview crew know the German city of Leverkusen, he replies “we gave it a rough time. Sorry about that.” Burrows received the French Legion of Honour in 2015; he died on 8 September 2017.

You had a job to do and you got on with it. At least I did and I think most of the others were the same. After all some of those ops required a long seven or eight hours, and getting shot at all the time is not so easy.
– Harold Burrows
