    Pembrey, Wales ( 1943 ).

    Left to right : Air Gunner Student Ernest Loop, Miles Martinet pilot and Flight Sergeant Eddie Wise.


    It was such a suprise, because I knew Ernest Loop! I met him - with a free researcher - at his home place ( July 8th, 2010 ). He was the youngest volunteer among the Belgians who flew in the R.A.F. " IN OPERATIONS ", as he said ( he was only 16 years old ). Ernest made 57 bombing missions with N98 Bomber Squadron. He finished the war as Flying Officer and awarded the D.F.C. " Loopy " ( one of his nicknames ) was a jolly good chap with such a sense of humor. We had a very good time, indeed!!!!!!! Hopefully, He answered all my questions!!!!

    Sadly, Ernest passed away on Monday June 20th, 2011, at the age of 86 years old.

    During this week, I received some mails from Mister Martin Wise who lives in Australia ( Eddie Wise son ). He is very grateful with the informations I gave. But he has no idea about the Sergeant identity who stands between Ernest and Eddie. So do I!

    Anybody can help us?

    Thanks a lot.

    Cheers,


    Mehdi.

    Perhaps this helps....http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Miles_Martinet

    BTW, could the pilot's shoulder flash also say Belgium?
