Montgomery, Jim [clipping] n.d. [image] [clipping] 16 May 1941 JAS. W. Montgomery [image] A former clerk in the Royal Bank of Canada, James William Montgomery, enlisted with the R.C.A.F. April 10, 1941. He is a son of Mr. and Mrs. W.G. Montgomery, 182 Water St., N., Galt. Well known in the city AC 2 Montgomery was a member of the Rover Scouts (1st Galt Crew). He was also prominent in athletic circles having played junior and senior basketball at the Galt Collegiate and was captain of the junior team. He also played basketball for the Y.M.C.A. city teams. He was on the collegiate track and field team and was intermediate champion at the school in 1937. He was born in St. Catherines March 19, 1919. His father, W.G. Montgomery and two uncles serviced in the first Great War. His religion is Presbyterian. [clipping] 16 Sept. 1944 Jim Montgomery Was Over Many German Targets A veteran of 21 operational flights, all night bombing missions over enemy targets, and also a tour of duty as an instructor at an operational training unit in the United Kingdom, Flt.-Lieut. James W. Montgomery, 25, is back in Galt for a 30-day leave at the conclusion of which he will report back to duty. A son of Mr. and Mrs. W.G. Montgomery, he arrived home late Thursday night. It was about 28 months ago that he went overseas, a couple of months after getting his navigator's wings at Fingal in 1942. He was commissioned shortly after being winged and then received two promotions overseas. While on operations he was on a pair of bombing missions to Berlin, one to Duesseldorf, a couple to Duisburg, a couple to Dortmund, one to Stuttgart, one to Hamburg before the blitz of Hamburg began, several mining trips, a bombing trip to St. Nazaire, to the Frisian Islands and Bordeaux and a trip down to Spain "to see the lights." With Same Crew The same crew, three Canadians, a pair of Scotsmen and a pair of English lads, were together for every mission. Their worst mission, so far as Flt.-Lieut. Montgomery was concerned, was one to Duisburg. There was thick clouds from 3,000 to 22,000 ft and while taking undulating evasive action to avoide heavy flak over the Ruhr, the motors cut out and the huge bomber rushed down from 11,000 to 4,000 feet before the pilot could bring the skipp out of it. After that they had to climb again through very heavy anti-aircraft fire. "Shot Up" Over Hamburg One his third operational flight the heavy night bomber was "shot up" over Hamburg. Two mothers became unserviceable over the target but the ship was flown back to the United Kingdom, though a landing was made at the first base that could be located, he recalled. "The most enjoyable trip was to Mannheim. it was a low level flight for the purpose of shooting up trains and things. It was a beautiful moonlight night, but near Luxembourg we hit a high tension cable. There was a terrific blue flash which the gunner thought was a ground battery and he began blazing away," laughed the galt flier as he recalled the excited gunner. "I don't know what he expected to hit." Hitting the cable ripped off three projections under the bomber but altogether the grew had a good time that night. Flt. Lieut. Montgomery completed his tour of operations a year ago June and since then he has been doing considerable flying as an instructor from an operational training unit. Looking back on his bombing missions, he said that he had never had any qualms about dropping bombs on the enemy. Unaware of where he will be posted when his leave is over he said hopefully, "I'd like a chance to drop some on the Japs."
