A short but interesting witness account by Gordon Mellor, a pilot with the RAF, shot down in Europe, using the Comet Chain, escape route through France and Spain down to Gibraltar, eventually smuggled across the border to the safety of the British territory. He also talks about his reception and brief period in Gibraltar. A good tale.
