    Anne is Alaska has been researching the final flight of Mischief Maker II, a B17 that was shot down near Brussels, Belgium on 4 Mar 1944. Anne's quest for knowledge took her to Brussels and she was generous enough to share her visit with us here on the site.

    I very much enjoy this postcard, thank you @Anne in Alaska !

    I really must stop in Brussels one day & have a look round.
    I've driven through it in the early hours of the morning, I've been stuck in traffic on the motorways around it but but never stopped & looked at what's there.

    Had a cousin in the diplomatic service who lived in Brussels a long time ago. Yet another place I've never been to...yet.
