Presentation

I started this English version of my blog Souvenirs de guerre because so many English speaking people helped me.

I work as a freelance translator mainly from English to French, but I can get my message across in English, at least I hope so.

  1. Hello from old Europe,

    I’ve discovered your web page coming from the Pierre Lagacé’s one.
    And I would like to express my gratefully thoughts about your work there along these pages.
    (I am a French writer working actually on a novel, the story of a Pacific ww2 pilot veteran in Hawaii.
    Midway, Guadalcanal, Marshall Islands…. are the theatre of the book.)
    These few lines to tell You that I work with veteran photographers from this period, have some relations with families too.
    That’s why it’s a pleasure to share with you through the distance, the same emotion for preserving the memories of the ones who gave a part of their life for the future generations.

    Sincerely,

    Jean Michel RiHET
    (pardonnez d’avoir écrit en Anglais, mais j’ai cru comprendre que Votre site est davantage anglophone que francophone – toute ma considération. Jm)

  2. Hi
    The reason for joining is my Uncle trained at No7 in 1942 and I have just found his log book and photo album.
    The names of some are Emma Gustafsen (Time Keeper) A team photo of all on course 77A. On his log are the names P/O Hampshire, F/O Wilson, P/O Lisham, F/LT Cormack, P/O Thornton & F/O Galbraith.
    Can any one help with this information.
    Regards
    Graham Jones

  3. You might read my Web Page at http://www.rpperry.com which has a section dealing with my RNZAF Career as well as other items of interest. I do keep it up to date with interesting items. For the last 15 years a group of us have been fighting the “powers that be” in England, demanding the issue of the Bomber Command Medal. This medal was actually struck, but was finally issued as the War Medal, after the uproar on the bombing of Dresden. We have now reached the stage where the British Government has formed a committee to look into this item as well as the issue of any other medals which should have been awarded along the way. It is our contention that the families of all those who died in Bomber Command, should have this small token in memory of the supreme contribution. Both the Australian and New Zealand Governments are backing the issue of the award.
