Hi all,

My name is Erwin de Mooij and I'm from the Netherlands. I have been researching the crash of an American B17 bomber in the Netherlands on September 26th 1944 for the last 13 years. In 2012 I placed a monument for the crew near the crash site and compiled a book about the crew and crash.

Now that most of the research has been done I find myself with a lot of time on my hands :D

Because a lot of reenactment is done for groundtroops I figured I would try reenactment for the USAAF. This way we will keep their memory alive too. I have had the honor to meet, greet and share some time with the men and I feel honored. I am trying to reenact a crewmember of my research plane. So my uniform will be compiled from around the June/September 1944 time period.

Some info: http://www.santaclaraweekly.com/2012/Is ... Clara.html

I do a lot of presentations about this crew for schoolchildren, historical societies and elderly so being able to show them how these guys would look like and what they would have been wearing.

So I hope to learn more, ask many questions and meet new people.

Erwin
