Major SS Urry is my cousin, and my mother is Nanette Brousse de Gersigny, living in Ireland. She spoke so often of Selwyn, her aunts son, and how he was lost during the war, and no one knew what happened. Now to find this is so amazing. There are pictures and history of Selwyn Urry aplenty here. I thank you so much for this website, and cannot express what I am feeling right now, but the tears are flowing.

Dear Webmaster,

I am looking desperatly for the contact details of Peter Nolde, John Manrho or Ron Putz. My great uncle Haymo von Grebmer thought in the Luftwaffe during WWII and was interviewed for the book "Bodenplatte: The Luftwaffe's Last Hope".

I would like to get in touch with one of them in order to ask them for the interview transcript.

Best regards,
Lukas von Grebmer

On march 27 1945 a Mosquito crashed in Roden, not far from Zevenhuizen. It was the RV 326, with Hudson and Gant. Last week I have interviewed a 87-year old lady, whitness of the crash. She was 15 years old at that time. I have hert story on tape and pictures are made. She was shocked because the plane almost hit the farmhouse where she was living. She clearly saw the two crew-,members in the blue plane. Is anybody interedted? This lady never talked about this crash, till last week.

Looking for obits, stories mentioning W. J. (Willem Jacob) van Stockum, my uncle. He was shot down on June 10, 1944 after taking off with nine other Halifax bombers from RAF 10th Squadron in Melbourne, Yorks. Two were shot down that night. The other one was piloted by an Australian. My uncle was seconded from the RCAF to the RAF. The two crews, 14 men, were honored by a French remembrance group in Laval, France; two monuments were erected with photos of the crew members.

Forgive me if I already wrote to you. I have sent many mails to the UK.Maybe another person has read it.
It is about the Wellington W5704. That plane bombed our village Roden, in the North of the Netherlands, on october 24 1941. It was a mistake. The target was Emden. I have written a book about that bombing. I would love to know more about the crew. Sgt. Gray, Austin, Tomlinson, Whitton, Gill and Cox. Those names come from thge RAF-reports. The plane could be from sq.99 Waterbeach, 149 sq. Mildenhall, 57 sq. Feltwell, 75 sq. Feltwell and 214 sq. Stradishall. Could anybody help me?
Thnak you very much. Tjerk Karsijns, Roden Holland.

I recently submitted a personal history to this site. They promptly listed the story. And they quickly and cheerfully made a few corrections and additions for me. The result looks wonderful and I am proud to see it on the site.
Well done!
