"LONE EVADER"
SERGEANT TED COATES
The Escape from France of an RAAF Pilot

RAAF Sergeant E.A. (Ted) Coates was flying his Wellington bomber over Germany on raid after raid knowing that eventually he and his crew would find themselves on the receiving end of a German fighter.

One night in November 1942 their worst fears were realised and Ted found himself parachuting through the darkness of a French night over enemy territory.

This story relates his adventures as he walked and rode across France on his way to Spain and freedom - without any help from the French 'Underground'.

This is a small segment of the big picture that was the air war in Europe and the part that young Australians played in that dangerous campaign.
