More news, no ads


In part three of the book will be, among other things, the story about the 34 bodies which washed upon the shore of Castricum during the war time. All 34 bodies were buried in Castricum in the local cemetery. Seventeen of the graves are known and seventeen unknown.

From fifteen out of the seventeen known graves I have got pictures of the deceased and their background story. The story about and a picture of Henry Raymond Glover, from King's Lynn, is still missing. It would be great to publish a photo of Henry Raymond Glover and information about him in my book. He gave his life for our freedom!

Henry Raymond Glover was born in 1921. He was the son of George Percy and Winifred Lauretta Glover, of West Lynn.

Sgt Glover was an air gunner on a Stirling with 7 Squadron.

On the night of June 24/25, 1943 the crew took off from Oakington to bomb the German city off Wuppertal.

The Stirling was lost over the North Sea. Sgt Glover was washed on the shore on the Dutch coast and is buried in Castricum.

I would be grateful for any information about him.
