Yes, there's a memorial to Count d'Ursel but, sadly and unaccountably, there is not one for Jim. We, in "Les Amis..", decided that even 70 years on, that his sacrifice and his passing merited a memorial so that future generations may be prompted to ask who, what and why. Accordingly, we have started a project to provide a memorial on the river bank to Jim Burch, the only aviator to lose his life while in Comète's hands.
We have just found a stonemason who will furnish us with a granite memorial stone, engrave a suitable inscription and set it up at the riverside. We are therefore launching an appeal for donations to finance this project. At the time of writing (3rd September) we already have a healthy number of donations. The drop down menu below has 4 options: 10€, 25€, 50€ & 100€. Please give generously..
