Are you a family member?

We would like to contact relatives because the story of his last flight will be dealt with in an upcoming publication scheduled to be launched on 21 November this year at the cityhall of Schouwen-Duiveland.
We are searching for a good picture of this pilot as well as of Sgt. Albert Smith who died during the very same mission.
