For Christmas 2005 I received a digital camera. This was the first photo I took
On 17th November 2005 First Secretary Ms. Hay from the New Zealand Embassy, Flight Sergeant Chris Kimber from the British Embassy and Reverend Glyn Williams visited the monument again together with Ria and Nico Schmieder and they all laid flowers.
In the summer of 2005 Max and Eileen Lambert visited the monument. Max is the author of the book "Night after night" (New Zealanders in Bomber Command)* in which the story of my father can be found.
In May 2005 a group British veterans visited the Midden-Limburg area. A wreath was laid at the monument on behalf of the various British regiments that fought here.
During the visit of Noel and Annette Fisher in April 2005, also Flight sergeant Chris Kimber of the British Embassy and Reverend Glyn Williams visited the monument. During an intimate and emotional short ceremony Reverend Glyn Williams blessed the monument.
In April 2005 Noel and Annette Fisher from New Zealand visited us. Noel is a relative of Horace Callow. We spent some wonderful days together and of course they also visited the monument and the Jonkersbos cemetery, Nijmegen.
In November 2004 First Secretary Ms. Hay from the New Zealand Embassy laid flowers at the monument.
