28/29.06.1944 No. 102 Squadron Halifax LW143
Halifax crash Operation: Railway yards, Blainville, France,
Date: 28/29th June 1944 (Wednesday/Thursday)Unit:
No. 102 Squadron
Type: Halifax III
Serial: LW143
Coded: DY-O
Location: Gisors-Gournay area, France
Air/Gnr: Sgt. Reg W.I. Joyce PoW No: 8100 Camp: Stalag Luft Sagan and Belaria

I was absolutely overwhelmed with pride when I came upon the Air Crew Remembered site - 28/29.06.1944 No. 102 Squadron Halifax LW143. My father is Reginald William Joyce, air gunner on the Halifax 111 LW143. He died peacefully on Monday, 29th December 2014 aged 89 years. Seeing the photographs of him and his crew was incredibly moving. He often talked of his crew with great respect and never ever forgot them. After the war my father went back to Lyons-la-Forest to give his thanks and gratitude to Huguette Verhague for the bravery and kindness she gave to him and his crew. It was there that he met, fell in love and married a local French girl, my mother Janine Colzy who actually watched LW143 being shot down. Little did she know her future husband was in that aircraft. My grandfather was Gustave Colzy (code name ‘Olaf’) a much respected member of the French Résistance. I have my father’s leather helmet and attachments which he wore when he was shot down, a great piece of history. What a story!
In memory to all those great men and women who fought and gave their lives for the peace we have today Amen.

Hello. Thank you for this wonderful web page. My Dad's brother was Air/Gnr: P/O. Gerald Albion Kent C/90305 RCAF of the No. 420 Squadron Halifax III LK803 PT-H. Sadly, he was killed with the rest of his crew on July 19, 1944 during a fighter affiliation training exercise. According to my Mother, he wasn't supposed to be on that flight but took the place of his friend who wanted to stay behind to be with his girlfriend. My parents have shared wonderful stories about Gerald and finding this web page brought me a bit closer to the man who would have been my uncle. From all accounts, he was a wonderful person. Thank you again for the hard work in putting this website together.

I have a family interest in Flt Sgt R W Cornelius. I was pointed towards your site and the research done re the crash of an aircraft in 10 Sqd RAF in which he was Flt Engineer in 1943.
I would like to find out more and confirm my relative is the same R W Cornelius.

I am married to the niece of Flying Officer D G Howse, killed in action in a Halifax II (JD261) of 51 Squadron during a raid to Gelsenkirchen on 25/26 June 1943. He was shot down by G. Radusch of 1 NJG based at Venlo. His grave was again visited in September 2014. I am in possession of a photo of him along with crew members that I have yet to identify.

You have a helpful and informative web-site.
