I have a copy of a photo of A-Able flying through the Eiffel Tower. It is signed by the late Bill Bryant RAF, an old friend of mine, who was the navigator of that aircraft piloted by Bob Boorman RCAF. The caption reads as follows:

"This Stars and Stripes photograph was taken on 14 September 1944 and shows a Mosquito Mk Xlll of 409 Squadron RCAF. Pilot W/O Bob Boorman RCAF, Navigator F/S Bill Bryant RAF flying through the Eiffel Tower. How the picture came to be taken is another story told to me before Bill Bryant died!!"
