Hi, Fred! Wow, I am truly impressed with your music! It's absolutely beautiful. I sure do wish we didn't live so far apart from each other -- I would certainly love the opportunity to work with you. It's always been one of my dreams to sing with an orchestra! I especially love your jazz arrangement of You'd Be So Nice to Come Home to. Market Garden is very moving, indeed. I'm not closing the book on our possible collaboration in the near future ...

I still have the tin helmet complete with bullet hole and the telegram sent to my Mum to inform her of him being injured.

The Best man was called W d Merry. My mum and dad also got married during the War o_n 15th January 1944. any info would be appreciated thanks Lynn Freeman

Het moest even inwerken, want de beelden blijven schokkend. Jouw muziek heb ik met bewondering en grote waardering beluisterd. je geeft deze documentaire zonder gesproken woord nog meer lading, hulde. Ik hoop dat je meer van dit soort scores zult kunnen maken.

Hello: My name is Marion and I recently created a site in June that is dedicated to my father and his fellow VI Corps Engineers. My father had passed away when I was 12 and all I had left were some campaign ribbons, a few photos and some patches and pins. I had tried several times in the past to accrue info on his tour of duty in the ETO from 1943-1945, but always hit a dead-end. Well, because I am very tenacious, I never gave up and began my search again in earnest this spring. Well, the pursuit paid off and in May of this year, I started receiving letters from WWII engineers and everything has been on the upswing ever since. I guess good things come to those who wait! If you have a chance, please stop by our site and take a look around. If you are so inclined, sign our guestbook and even join our forum. Please note that the site is still in it's infancy and I am adding info on an almost daily basis. Keep up the great work. I have placed a link to your site on my Links Page.

Hello Fred, seems like a zillion years ago we met on Omaha Beach, during the 60th commemoration of D-Day. I remember the sun rising over a misty but calm sea, the wide beaches mostly desolate of people... Will be there again this June, for the 63rd commemoration. Check out my new website: over 1.300 pages on the US Paratroops during WWII. Not just their Stories, but massive Menu's about their Gear, Personal Items, Rations, Helmets, Songs, Lyrics, Databases, Patches etc. The biggest Online Scrapbook and Visual Database, and free for all. Lets make sure WWII is remembered by generations to come. pararesearchteam.com LEST WE FORGET OUR LIBERATORS !

Hallo Fred, ik kom heel toevallig op je site terecht. Het gaat goed zo te zien. Met mij gaat het het ook goed, ben aardig druk in verschillende bands, dus de strenge lessen hebben me toch goed gedaan. ;-) Speel je zelf ook nog drums of ben je alleen maar druk met schrijven? Nou de groeten uit Almelo, Martin Geerdink
