Hank was a Wing Commander in the Royal Canadian Air Force and the she gave Johnny to Hank as a good luck charm since he was a tail gunner, the most dangerous spot to be on the plane.
Hank kept Johnny in the pocket of his bomber jacket during his flights and his crew survived more than a few close calls. They eventually made Johnny part of roll call. Once they even took off late because Hank had forgotten him in his bunk and he had to go back to get him.
Hank made over 61 flights with Johnny, which is an amazing number for a tail gunner.
