More about wablack

On June 27th, 1944, Captain William Anderson Black, of RAF No 2 Squadron, was killed over a small French town called St. Rigomer-desBois while flying RAF reconnaissance missions in support of post-D-Day operations.
In May 2010, 39 members of William Black's extended family traveled to St. Rigomer-des-Bois where Bill died 66 years ago. Providing us with a glimpse into Bill's life, this event brought us together with the citizens of St. Rigomer for a ceremony to unveil a permanent  monument dedicated to Bill's sacrifice. This collective blog is dedicated these amazing journeys. Renee
