Historian Roland Versele has passed away

It is with great sadness that we have to announce that our long time friend Roland Versele has passed away on June 13th, 2011. Roland who was the expert on Bollekens aircraft and early military aviation in Belgium was a member of the Royal Army Museum - Aeronautical section's "Historical Team" since many years and a very valuable friend, always ready to help. Cdt Versele helped to register and classify the vast "Russian Archives" (Belgian military documents recovered in Moscow) for the Army Museum's central library for many years and was also an expert on Belgian fortifications. Roland's expert comments and optimism will be sorely missed.
"Belgian Wings", the "Historical Team" and "BelgianAviationNews" wishes to express their deepest condolences to the family and relatives of Roland.
