Sir Arthur Harris on Bennett

The Page on the appointment of Bennett has been updated with the very vivid portrait which Harris painted of Bennett in his post-war memoirs, Bomber Offensive, published in 1947. Although Harris and Bennett had had a considerable falling out (see the Page on 83 and 97 Squadron leaving the PFF) in early 1944, once the war was over Harris gave Bennett his due as one of the most outstanding airmen in the wartime RAF.

Bennett’s view of Harris will be posted at a later date.
