There is a story behind that picture.
According to his son Terry…
Dad had over 900 hours total and 220 plus in actual engagement. He flew six sorties at Dieppe and I believe was credited a 190 destroyed on that day. They left before first light and returned after dark.
That’s the picture I saw on the wall when I visited Dennis Connolly back in 2012.
That’s the reason I wanted to see him again so he could talk more about it. Not to talk about the war, but about his plane.
I did not know he had more pictures until I saw those… on this site.
Dennis is pictured there with Flight Lieutenant Demozay. I talked about Demozay here on my French version of this blog.
We also pay homage to this French pilot on this Website. The funny thing, if I might use the word funny, is that I would have never known about Flight Lieutenant Demozay and Dennis Connolly if I had not listen to Marc-André Valiquette’s advice to come and see his book presentation.
