Don Walz Visiting France

Here are some pictures sent by Samuel Magdelaine who found out about this blog paying homage to 443 Squadron. His grandfather had helped Donald Walz escaping from the Germans when he was shot down.

I will continue with  the translation of the last post in the coming weeks so people in France can read this amazing story about Donald Walz.
