Paying homage to Ron Beasley Redux

Add this comment to this post I wrote early in 2012.


I have been researching members of my family that served during the Second World War… I remember my Dad talking of Ronald visiting him at our family home in Morden, Surrey, UK, when my Dad was a child… I believe he visited on several occasions… my Dad had various clippings etc at home and I intend to visit his grave in Belgium with my own children later this year… elder relatives have visited the site several times (alas,no longer here)… if anybody concerned with the Beasley family reads this post, I would truly be happy to receive a message for email contact… thanks…

Stephen Beasley.

PS to the above… I’d really be happy to receive any information on J.R.Beasley from any source.

Another Picture of Dave’s Dad?

Unknown Erks with Teddy

Dave –

here’s another picture of the airman you think might be your dad – standing next to the fellow holding the small dog. The dog is “Teddy”. He was my dad’s dog during the war in Europe. The Erks actually got him back to England at the end of the war. I’ll post that story sometime – it’s another good one!
