I hope you have had a good start to 2016!
I am pleased to announce that an additional document has been uploaded to the 417th website. This document details the life of Raymond Christensen, a member of the original 417th NFS. The document was written by Karen Seeman. Ray was her great-uncle. The document is a labor of love. Karen’s journey into discovering more about Ray’s life began when her grandmother told her that she had a great-uncle who was killed in the war. I’m am honored that Karen has permitted us to publish this wonderful story of Ray’s life. The story not only provides us with addition details on Ray, but also provides additional insight into life as a squadron member.
I have added this document under the Letters and Tributes link that can be found under the Night Fighter History menu. Or, just click here and you will be redirected to that page. Raymond’s story is located in the new section called Tributes which is located at the bottom half of the page.
Do you have a tribute, memoir or letter from someone who served in the NFS that you would like to see published on our website? Please get in touch via the Contact Us link.
