  1. Dear Sir, Madam,
    My name is Peter Homan from Bergen, The Netherlands. We are working on a project “Give them a face” for which we try to find pictures of the 250 allied pilots who are berried at our local cemetery. Also some men from the C.R.A.F. are berried in our town. However, we are not able to find any information on Sgt. Georges Heider (from Vian Bridge, Montreal?) who died in December 1943. Our question: do you have more information on Georges Heider? If you whish, we can send you a picture of his grave stone.
    Awaiting your reply and with kind regards,
    Peter Homan.
