While Ivor Broom is perhaps the better known of the two Brooms
on 2 February 2015
I have yet to read Ivor Broom's "Clean Sweep", but it seems that these two were destined to operate together at some point during the war. While Ivor Broom is perhaps the better known of the two Brooms, Tommy seems to have carved his own path to notoriety anyway, and that anyone of his calibre should survive the war is testament to hi skill, and I daresay the required luck that seemed to follow him.
His abilities as a navigator meant that he was likely to be at the pointy end of any operation, and paired with Ivor Broom, doubly so. We should also admire any or those aircrew who made it back home after being shot down in enemy territory, and then went back on operations.
