Default B17 MI Amigo ...,

Very sorry if is this is in the wrong place, ( please move if it is thank's) but I thought it would be nice to share with you, It's about an 82 year old that has tended the memorial to the crew of B17 Mi Amigo that crashed on the city of Shefield in 1944. Every month on the 22nd for decades, 82 year old Tony Foulds has placed flowers on the memorial that was built in Endcliffe park to honour the ten U.S. airmen who died, he calls them his family and places a kiss on the ten names every time he visits. I like to think we did those airmen proud as there were thousands of people turned out, to show their respects last week.
We all say " Thank you "
