    Do any of you have a relative that was a pilot in WW1 or WW2?

    Just before ww2, my granddad became an NCO pilot in the part of the Netherlands Naval Airservice that was deployed in the Netherlands East Indies at the time. Here he flew those big Do 24 flying boats during the first stages of the war with Japan. He reached Australia, despite leaving wife and children behind and spent the war years flying from Ceylon to Cape town and back in those big PBY Catalina flying boats. He joined the Dutch Airforce after the war and was the 1st pilot to survey the storm damage of february 1953... About ten to fifteen years or so ago, I kind of managed to get it out of him that he was a survivor of the Broome attack of March of '42. It changed my view of him. I didn't make him a hero to me, it just made him Lucky. I do have some other good memories of him as well. Just prior to his death he was interviewed by one of the national tv stations aboard the only Catalina flying boat we had in the Netherlands at the time. When it was aloft he was a little sad that he couldn't sit in the front seat.. He lived to be 100 years old, and what is the most humbling to me is that his story was included in the setup for the NMM, the National Military Museum we have over here.
