Sometimes you get to meet people whether in person or through e-mails, Facebook, or through WordPress.
This is how I met a blogger who writes about a paratrooper in the Pacific.
This is how I met Allan who writes about his uncle who was a tail gunner in the Pacific.
This is how I met the daughter of a Hurricane pilot who flew in Palestine then who flew a Hawker Typhoon in England.
How he managed to survive operations on a Typhoon is still a mystery.
I could go on an on with stories of how I met people since 2009 when I first created Souvenirs de guerre which is the equivalent of Lest We Forget.
I have learned a lot since 2009 and I never forget.
Where the cooks, clerks and drivers were at back then?
It’s about what some veterans will recount about WWII.
It’s easy to find if they tell the truth.
Are they only talking about themselves and never about their comrades-in-arms?
Are they talking period…?
This is the story of a tail gunner who never talked about the war…
until he met this man’s nephew.
