My name is Rene Bosma and I'm a Dutch WWII researcher and I live in Oosterwolde, the Netherlands. At the moment I research a crashlanding of a American B-17 that came on the ground on the 7th of May 1944 near a little town names Nijelamer.
On of the crewmembers was Thomas Patrick Reilly. He was the tail gunner in this crew. Before the bomber crash landed Thomas jumped out and landed on his parachute on Dutch ground. He was helped by the Dutch resistance. They hided him till the liberation of the Netherlands.
At the moment I make a story about the whole event and that's why I like to get in contact with relatives of Thomas. I hope I can find them after someone in this group maybe could pass Thomas his Orbit to me. He sadly passed away on the 26 NOV 2002 at Bay Shore, Suffolk, New York, USA.
I will thank everyone who can help me to keep the story of our war time hero alive.
Kind greetings, Rene Bosma (firstname.lastname@example.org
