Dave, would it be possible for you to give me the address or other contact information for the lady from Langham, Saskatchewan? I cannot help her with the village history but am curious to know if she has any knowledge of the Tail Gunner in my Wellington bomber crew who was killed the night we dropped in on RAF Lang him May 11, 1945. He was a young man from northern Saskatchewan; the actual place name is unknown to me. It seems such a coincidence that this lady from a town of the same name is curious about Lang him, Norfolk. There is probably no connection, but I had to ask. I spent three days in the Lang him village hospital, thus didn't see much of the village. My daughter Katherine visited Langhim when she was a student in London in approximately 1995, met the lady Mayor, several citizens and the proprietor of the Bluebell. She brought me a delightful painting of the pub that I hang proudly in my dining room. I would be very pleased to hear from you.
You should have already received a reply direct to your e-mail but just in case:
The tail gunner was Flying Officer (Air Gunner) Glen James Hay. His portrait still hangs in the Bluebell and a house in the village was named after him with the permission of his surviving relatives.
An account of the crash and unsuccessful rescue attempt starts on p50 of the Brief History of RAF Langham.
If you want something posting let me have the details.
