    Hello
    Glad to have found you folks.

    We are learning about B17 Mischief Maker II, shot down, with a crew that mostly escaped and evaded. Have been doing reading and researching.
    There will be a family trip this spring and, wonderfully, we will meet family of some of the people who sheltered our relative.

    This site looks great - I've found some older threads about the plane and Belgian resistance already.

    Yep - those guys, but since Howard was a photographer, don't think he is in that photo. The report our guy made says Glabais (near the cemetery) and we have the addresses of a couple of houses he stayed in in Brussels. We have a couple of weeks in the country, so can check museums as well as the locations we have.
