Hi I am researching a W W 2 fighter pilot Byron J Fisher who is buried
in Monona county U S A .I witnessed his mid air colision with an R A F
pilot over Essex England U K in 1945 as a child. Collecting information
and talking to other eye witnesses. It is 60 years on now and I wondered
if any of the Fisher family still lived in the area as there are sevral
burid together with Byron in the same cemetary. If there is any interest
there please put them in contact with me .
Yours with thanks Alan Pennie.
Thanks Linda for a quick reply , there was a newspaper article about
Byron recently, we had lots of American lads here in the 1940s little
America they called it, they have been coming back over the years, but
fewer now as they are all in their 80s. Just to show we don't forget.
