Los van de door jou gecomponeerde muziek (die prachtig is) vind ik ook je betrokkenheid bij het onderwerp en de veteranen indrukwekkend. Je hebt met je werk heel veel mensen blij gemaakt, denk ik. Chris Houtman @ 2018-02-11, 12:31

What a nice commemoration of these Heroe's of Freedom. My late grandfather James Cox was in Lady Bay when the bombs of Hiroshima and Nagasaki were dropped before WWII finally ended and I have great respect for the great soldiers of WWII and their personal sacrifices for our countries freedom. Thank you to all whom served in this war and others like myself that the torch of freedom was past to also to preserve! Matt Cox @ 2018-02-11, 10:06
Fred wat een mooie site en een zeer interessant stuk medical support! Het beantwoord alleen niet helemaal mijn vraag, sterker nog het zorgt voor nieuwe vragen. Guest @ 2018-02-05, 11:43
Thank you for the work you do to keep alive the memory of the brave aircrews of WW2. My uncle, Albert X, was on this flight. Guest @ 2018-01-27, 13:30
As a 3 time deployed American Infantryman, and an avid history and World War enthusiast, I thought it would be a nice addition to your great site, I used it in looking up all the info I could find in my Great Uncle, because I grew up hearing the stories of what kind of man he was, and his heroic actions up until his death over France.
Thank you for the site!

Fred,
Thanks so much for sharing your work with me. It covers such a wide range of moods and emotions (including familiar themes). It lives as a beautiful tribute to the memory of all who served, suffered and sacrificed. I look forward to sharing it with people I know.

Hoping you and your family enjoy a beautiful holiday season. Guest @ 2017-12-21, 11:06

I have just found my Uncle William D Kirton on this site. So pleased they have been remembered. guest @ 2017-09-02, 22:09
Sorry, meant to say in my earlier reply that I think you have a terrific website. Thank you for producing such a wonderful resource. Guest @ 2017-09-02, 18:51
Hello Fred, I am forgetting my manners,? I should have said thank you for all the hours of hard work you have put into making this information available to us all. My interest in the whole Arnhem operation is something I have had for most of my life. I'm 64 and have visited Arnhem and Oosterbeek many times. My uncle XXX was a huge influence in my life and I have waited far too long to try to find out more about him. When he was shot down and made a forced landing at XXX, he was as you'll know, one of the seven aircraft (out of 10) which 190 Squadron lost that day. The squadron were already feeling the impact of the previous losses in experienced crews. XXX was flying that day without a co-pilot - there were so few experienced pilots left on the squadron by then. He had instead a second bomb-aimer in the crew. Another pair of hands and pair of eyes would have bee useful but it's not the same as having two pilots. XXX died a long time ago, but I know that he paid a visit back to XXX, (I think this was in the early 1980's) When he crashed he was found by some of your brave countrymen and rescued. XXX was able to trace the family who helped him. There is near XXX a small enclosure/shrine/monument surrounded by metal fencing, I wonder if this in some way commemorates the crash? I have recently been in touch with some of the other relatives in his family. It is possible that his granddaughter has more information, including photographs. If I can find out more I would be very happy to share this with you. I am very much aware of how easy it could be for all these stories to be lost. By bringing this to a website like yours is a way of preserving our shared history. Thank you for helping me earlier, as I stumbled around with my limited PC skills. Very best wishes and thanks XXX P. S. I served with the RAF for forty years, but that's another story. Fred Vogels @ 2017-09-01, 21:45
THIS WAS MY FATHER'S AIRCRAFT. DO YOU HAVE ANY PICTURES OF THE AIRCRAFT BEARING DARK RHAPSODY? THANKS FOR YOUR WORK!! Fred Vogels @ 2017-09-01, 21:45
Thanks so much for this! I have just come back from Launceston where WiFi is very mixed - so now I'm back in London, lots of emails are pinging in! Will get on to this tomorrow - may I come back to you if anything else crops up? Thanks so much and very best, Fred Vogels @ 2017-09-01, 21:45
Music inspired by D-day: wat een mooie film. Hoe verzinnen ze het vraag je je af. Fred Vogels @ 2017-09-01, 21:45
Fred, met bewondering heb ik gekeken naar de film en geluisterd naar je muziek. Emmy-waardig en terecht. En inderdaad, heel wat anders dan Rieu. Ik ben zelf ook 2 x aan de kust van Normandi? geweest en zelfs de nu lege stranden hebben toen diepe indruk op mij gemaakt. Met jouw document zal dit levend blijven. Chapeau!
