A.E. (Bunny) Brown, DFC, of Burlington, Ont., relates an experience from the time he was pilot of a Lockheed Hudson on U-boat patrol in the North Atlantic: “I landed and taxied back to the flight line where the ground crew beckoned me in. The corporal waved for me to cut engines, which I did. Then suddenly I saw all the ground crew running away like mad. I turned to my second pilot and said: ‘What the hell are they all running away for?’ “’Well, Skipper,’ he said, ‘you just dropped all our bomb load.’” Bunny adds that no one was hurt.
