Ex P/O George Pridham of St. John, New Brunswick had this to say, “We were badly hit by a night fighter aircraft so Cliff yelled for anyone who could to bail out. I was hit in the leg and lost it as a Prisoner of War. P/O J.C. Russell, the navigator also bailed out, but the rest didn’t make it. Cliff wasn’t hit I believe but stayed with the a/c not knowing who was hit or who could get out. In 1985 I was contacted by Mr. John Van Vleet of Lopek, Holland and he said our a/c had been found by him and some diver friends in the mud of the Lek River at Lopek, one Rolls Royce engine was taken out and made to look like new. They built a 6 ft. by 10 ft. steel and glass special memorial and put the engine in it along with a 20 ft. wing pointing straight up, all of our names were put on it. I contacted J.C. Russell in Toronto but he showed no interest in the subject. I also contacted Cliff’s relatives at Morden and in 1986 there was a get together there of some of the next of kin of those killed and those involved in Holland.” In May 1990, Les Allison, researcher for this book, visited the memorial and talked to a local man who had seen the aircraft come down when he was 16 yrs. old.
