    At 11am today I'll be standing in a little church graveyard about nine miles from my house, paying my small tribute to four Canadian airmen who never got to go home.

    See - http://theswissriflesdotcommessageboard.yuku.com/topic/8535?page=-1

    Left to right -

    Sgt Norman Boyce RCAF
    Sgt Bob Dobie RCAF
    Flt Sgt Don Lindsey RCAF
    Flt Sgt Joe O'Leary RCAF

    All died 26 March 1942.

    Also my grandfather, Pte William V Collins +21-6-1917

    Then, an hour later, I'll be over at the US Military Cemetery at Madingley, paying my respects to -

    Lt Thomas A Foley of Oregon - Wall of Remembrance

    and

    Cpl John H Foley - Row O, plot 58
