[Belgian Wings] De prille jaren van « 1er Régiment...

Forwarded message - From: Serge Bellemans



  Serge Bellemans et Vincent Vanhuysse ont publié dans Belgian Wings .       Serge Bellemans 27 Janvier, 09:05   De prille jaren van « 1er Régiment d'aéronautique/Groupe ballon » wat later de 23 Log W werd in Zellik. Deze logistieke wing werd gesloten in '95 of '96 onder het bevel van Kol Bosmans. De hangar is nu een geklasseerd monument. Op de derde foto zie je het kapperssalon uit dezelfde periode. Nu, na renovatie is het de opleidingsschool voor politie en brandweer, afgekort PIVO. (Provinciaal instituut voor opleiding).   J'aime Commenter Partager

[Belgian Wings] iets voor het slechte weer : The Flemish Farm

Forwarded message - From: Erwin Kenis


  Erwin Kenis a publié dans Belgian Wings .       Erwin Kenis 30 décembre, 15:12   iets voor het slechte weer : The Flemish Farm In May 1940, as German forces sweep across France and Belgium, the remains of the Belgian Air Force are bottled up near the Flemish coast, and billeted at a farm in the Flemish countryside. Ordered by their government to surrender, the commander gives orders that the regimental colours be honourably buried, rather than surrendered to the invaders. The few pilots with serviceable aeroplanes fly to England to join the Allied air forces, while those remaining are forced to surrender. Six months later, after fighting in the Battle of Britain, Jean Duclos, now a squadron leader, is persuaded by a fellow officer to return with him to retrieve the colours. The latter is killed before he can leave, and Duclos persuades the authorities to parachute him into Belgium. He contacts his former commanding officer, now living as a civilian in Ghent and secretly operating a resistance group feeding intelligence to the Allies. Provided with a false identity and a cover story, Duclos returns to the farm, where his late colleague's wife and child still live. She is initially unwilling to reveal where the colours are buried, believing that they are not worth dying for. But she relents and the colours are retrieved. Duclos must now travel through several hundred miles of dangerous and heavily guarded country to reach neutral Spain, from where he returns to England. On his return, the colours are paraded and formally re-presented to the Belgian Air Force. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vksP0dOyNZ0 Flemish Farm (1943)   J'aime Commenter Partager
