Thread: THE GAMBIA - Jeswang

    Default THE GAMBIA - Jeswang

    My dad was a Hudson pilot with 200 Squadron in Gambia 1941 on U Boat patrol - they were based on the runway at Jeswang, with a rest camp nearby on the beach. He would often hire a dug-out canoe and native rower from the local chief and fish for barracuda, which supplemented their meagre rations rather nicely!

    Lloyd Trigg VC served on 200 Sqn, he was awarded a posthumos VC. His VC is unique as it was awarded on the recommedation of the commander of the U boat he sunk.
