This is from our great friend and supporter Jochem Schmetz

Hello to you all,

As you all heve all read our provincie of Zeeland has some thought about the big remembrance in 2019.

This Big remembrance will start in the town of Terneuzen. The most events will take place there. And also some in Westkapelle and Vlissingen. But...... It must take place on the 31st of August.
Do you think most of you will visit in August or prefer a remembrance in November.

Please send this on to others who will come over and ask them the same.
Mabey now we can change something.

Best regards and greetings from Vlissingen
Jochem and familie.

My own opinion is we go in October / November, when our Dads' landed on 1st November 1944, to support our friends in Flushing / Vlissingen / Westkapelle who have done so much for us in the past.

I have been in contact with other units who fought in Westkapelle and Flushing.

Bill
