    Hello,
    I’m looking for information about the evaded crew of the Mosquito LR499 crashed Heeswijk- Dinther NL on the 2. December 1943.

    The crew came together with T/Sgt. Louis H. Breitenbach and I are interested in the memoirs of him, but your Link to them isn’t working anymore.
    Could you send me the PDF directly? Thanks Thorsten

    Breitenbach, Tech. Sgt. Louis H., USAAF Memoirs: http://resources21.kb.nl/gvn/EVDO01/pdf/EVDO01_ROE01_133.pdf. Describes his experiences, including being shot down, helped by Dutch civilians, capture, POW camps.

    The Webmaster replies: The website, resources21.kb.nl, no longer appears to be working, so there is no way I can provide you with the pdf file on Sgt. Breitenbach. Are you familiar with what is available on the https://www.airwar4045.nl/ website on Sgt. Breitenbach and are you familiar with this website: https://studiegroepluchtoorlog.nl/22-02-1944-sglo-t3449-boeing-b-17g-42-31399-pu-f/? The latter refers to a Bulletin 042 from June 1979 by Mr. L. Zwaaf that may have additional information.
