Harry Feenstra’s Mapped Story of the Night of 7 June 1942…

This time last year Harry Feenstra sent me a wonderful map of the area in which dad’s plane came down… it tells in pictorial form of the events of that day (before dawn initially) of what happened to the crew.

At the time I put it on this blog but a friend, Ger Boogmans, asked if I’d keep it off the blog because the SMAMF group were working towards a plan for the 7 Jun 2016 and he didn’t want to give the game away. I removed it… but I’m pleased to be able to put it back up here again so that folk can see it and can understand what happened to the men after they’d bailed out of their stricken aircraft.
