    I'd thought I would share this photo of my Grandfather dropping supplies over Holland after the war ended.
    He was a Polish pilot fighting under a division of the British. He also flew the Mosquito, and yes he's still alive.

    Enjoy.

    Second that. My inlaws were kids then and may very well have benefited from your Grandfather's mercy run.
