    I received another e-mail late last week from Jean-Luc, vice president of the "Forced Landing Association" in France. He said that he has mailed out a package to me which contains photos, documents, reports, records, newspaper articles, parts of my great uncles airplane, and other items that have a connection to my great uncle that he thought might be of interest to me. I am expecting that package soon and will post pics when I get the chance.

    Here are some pictures of my great uncle Jay, some of the Germans he fought on 14 July 1944, and pictures of parts of his airplane discovered at the crash site in 1999. I received all of these items from my friend Jean-Luc from France earlier today. There are many other items, but the other items will have to wait for now.

    Hi Joel, sorry we don't allow outside links to photobucket etc. The problem is these type of links die over time and we are then left with empty useless threads.

    If you cannot post them directly on the forum send me a PM and I will send you my email address so you can send them to me.

    I am keen to see the items!

    Cheers, Ade.
