My name is Jill McClurg, and I am the granddaughter of Robert H. Lemon. I do not have the information with me right now, so I do not remember what his rank was.
My grandfather trained with this crew and was scheduled to be the pilot who flew the mission.
Just before they were deployed, my grandfather became very ill and was puller from the mission.

For the rest of his life he felt such regret and guilt, feeling that maybe if he had been able to pilot the mission, things would have been different.

I am currently studying abroad in Verviers, Belgium, and I want so very badly to go and visit the memorial and take some pictures to bring back for my grandmother. It would mean the world to her.

Could anybody please help me in finding where I need to go?

Please, please email me at [email protected]

John Mahoney was my uncle and although I never met him I feel that I knew him from what my father, grandmother, and uncles told me about him. All of my generation of the family are always interested in finding out more about Uncle John and truely appreciate what you have done here. Thank you so much.

Hallo Jan,

Bedankt voor uw mailtje. In ons onderzoek hebben wij enkel de bemanning gevolgd en niet zo zeer de verzetsleden. Ik verwijs u graag door naar Heldentrouw in Waregem of het Archief van Stad Waregem voor meer informatie omtrent verzetsleden.

Moest ik meer informatie verkrijgen, dan breng ik u zeker op de hoogte.

Met vriendelijke groeten,

Jürgen Verstaen

Beste,

Mijn grootvader was Roger Dubois. Ik weet enkel dat hij idd 2 piloten heeft geholpen waarvan er één de naam John had. Hebben jullie toevallig nog meer informatie over zijn verleden bij het verzet. Blijkbaar vertelde hij niet graag over deze periode tegen zijn kinderen dus het zou interessant zijn om te weten of ik via deze weg nog iets over hem te weten kan komen....

Alvast bedankt
