I was more than pleased to read more about P/O M.W.Brown(RCAF) who was the sole survivor of Halifax W1117 of 35 Sqdn crashed homebound in the night 16/17 June 1942 over Veldhoven/Vessem. I looking forward to hear from relatives of Brown and also from the pilot F/Sgt A.E. Hammond who was perished in the crash. If you have any leads please contact me. Regards, Adrian
A buddy of mine, also an RCAF member during WW11 presented me with the Air Force ball cap a year or so ago. Constant use over that time my present cap is as shabby almost as I am thus the need to acquire a new one. Iwas seconded to two RAF squadrons 200 and 292 flying in Africa along with service in India Burma and came away with an operational wing and bar. Now I have memories to keep me company as I watch the fireplace slowly each time I have it on. Good job you are doing Keep it up

Thank you for this website. I'd just like to ask for two minor edits in my father's entry - TRIPE, S/L Phillip Valentine King (42279). 1) It's Philip with one "l". 2) "He drowned in an ice boating accident." He continued to be very active to the end and "ice boating" is more fitting and true. Thanks again.
