William Jowitt - Operation Wilhelmshaven

During his time in Germany, he carried out many patrols and it was one “Operation Wilhelmshaven” that he must have remembered most, as he wrote in detail about this mission behind enemy lines.  It occurred on April 25th some two weeks before the town was liberated - for a full version of his story click below.

Operation Wilhelmshaven

By the late summer of 1945,he was back billeted in tents in Regimental HQ at Richmond Park (see the bandstand, which was relocated to Regents Park where it was damaged in the IRA Bomb blast of 1982), and with the war over, pictures reflect a much more relaxed Phantom.
