Thanks for visiting my blog.
My name is Yves Van den Brouck. I am 35 years old and live in a small village near Mechelen (Belgium).
Ever since I was a young boy, I have been fascinated by history and airplanes.
My goal is to give history a voice so no one will ever forget what happened.
Robert “Bobby” Laumans was a Spitfire pilot during the Second World War. He took part in an attempt to escape from camp Stalag Luft III. Some years later, a movie was made : “The great escape”. Definitely worth a look.
I hope you enjoy my first story.
You might have some remarks or ideas.
