Hi I am the daughter of a soldier who was wounded in France following the Normandy Landings. I have just found out he was in the 15th Scotish division. He was injured in Operation Bluecoat with his best man. sadly his friend died of his injuries and my dad although having recieved a wound to his head survied and came home. I still have the tin helmet complete with bullet hole and the telegram sent to my Mum to inform her of him being injured. Both my parents have now died and I would like to find out more information about his regiment or any thing. His name was Charles(Charlie) Wright and my Mum was Amelia (Millie/Mim) nee Biggs. The Best man was called W d Merry. My mum and dad also got married during the War on 15th January 1944. any info would be appreciated thanks Lynn Freeman Fred Vogels @ 2017-09-01, 19:45

Hi Fred! Je hebt een fantastische multimedia presentatie gemaakt voor de opening van onze turnhal. Het is inmiddels al enige tijd geleden, maar het gaf de openingsceremonie precies het smoel waar we naar zochten. De presentatie is ook op onze website gezet: http://www.topturnen.nl => Reportages. Nog heel hartelijk dank voor je moeite en snelle respons op onze vraag. Heel veel creatief succes gewenst verder. Namens TON, Martijn Loots. Fred Vogels @ 2017-09-01, 19:45

Het moest even inwerken, want de beelden blijven schokkend. Jouw muziek heb ik met bewondering en grote waardering beluisterd. je geeft deze documentaire zonder gesproken woord nog meer lading, hulde. Ik hoop dat je meer van dit soort scores zult kunnen maken. Fred Vogels @ 2017-09-01, 19:45

Thanks Fred Vogels @ 2017-09-01, 19:45
Hello: My name is Marion and I recently created a site in June that is dedicated to my father and his fellow VI Corps Engineers. My father had passed away when I was 12 and all I had left were some campaign ribbons, a few photos and some patches and pins. I had tried several times in the past to accrue info on his tour of duty in the ETO from 1943-1945, but always hit a dead-end. Well, because I am very tenacious, I never gave up and began my search again in earnest this spring. Well, the pursuit paid off and in May of this year, I started receiving letters from WWII engineers and everything has been on the upswing ever since. I guess good things come to those who wait! If you have a chance, please stop by our site and take a look around. If you are so inclined, sign our guestbook and even join our forum. Please note that the site is still in it's infancy and I am adding info on an almost daily basis. Keep up the great work. I have placed a link to your site on my Links Page.

Hello Mr. Vogels, I am a high school student in Loveland Colorado and I am doing a project on fighter pilots of WWII. I have found your music and Market Garden truly moves me. May I please have your permission to incorporate this song into my presentation? I would be honored to play it and I believe it will help make a profound impact on my audience. Thank you so much Chris Fred Vogels @ 2017-09-01, 19:45

Hallo Fred! Da's lang geleden, ik weet 't nog goed: M'n eerste drumlessen in de muziekschool van Almelo. Goh, wat heb ik het nog vaak over je gehad, nu nog af en toe. Vol bewondering voor die tijd! En weet je? Alles lijkt goed te gaan komen, surf maar eens naar m'n website. Bedankt voor die tijd en een groet, Joost Visser... Fred Vogels @ 2017-09-01, 19:45
Hallo Fred, ik kom heel toevallig op je site terecht. Het gaat goed zo te zien. Met mij gaat het het ook goed, ben aardig druk in verschillende bands, dus de strenge lessen hebben me toch goed gedaan. ;-) Speel je zelf ook nog drums of ben je alleen maar druk met schrijven? Nou de groeten uit Almelo, Martin Geerdink Fred Vogels @ 2017-09-01, 19:45
Hallo Fred, even naar je site gekeken en een paar stukjes muziek beluisterd... Ben nog onder de indruk van beide. Wens je het allerbeste, en, zoals ze bij ons zeggen, olie drijft boven ! Eveneens bedankt voor je reaktie ! Fred Vogels @ 2017-09-01, 19:45
Had al eens fragmenten uit deze film gezien maar het geheel is shocking en zeer indringend. Fraaie muziek die situaties versterkt, afzwakt of ondersteund. Mijn Joodse vader heeft in een concentratiekamp gezeten (samen met violist Benny Behr, voormalig concertmeester van het Metropole) maar is uiteindelijk net op tijd vrij gekomen. Onbeschrijfelijk wat daar zich allemaal heeft afgespeeld. Halverwege de film wilde ik afhaken maar heb het toch helemaal gezien. Het totaal heeft een diepe indruk bij mij achtergelaten. Lijkt mij zeer lastig als je aan het componeren bent om de beelden vaak te zien. Knap werk. Fred Vogels @ 2017-09-01, 19:45
Great Site. Fantastic!! Fred Vogels @ 2017-09-01, 19:45
