    Default Sgt H.E.Vey

    Looking for more info about Sgt H.E.Vey R/106564 (RCAF) who was made POW after his Wellington MkIII ,Z1599, OW-B of 426 Sqdn RCAF crashed near Boerdonk in Holland on the 26 February 1943 after a raid to Cologne. Also I would like to get in touch with him if he is still alive/or family. Further I would like to get in touch with the families of Sgt H.Rands from Alliance,Canada/ F/O J.P.Monckton from Victoria,Canada/ F/Sgt W.W.Cameron from Ewarts,Canada and the families of Sgt R.Williams and Sgt R.E.Dean. At next year we have planned a memorial near the crashsite.

    Regards and many Thanks for looking,
    Adrian
