edit: I've just found a marriage in Hammersmith in 1944 - looks as though she might be a widow.

I've finally sent off for this Marriage Cert - now that Sterling isn't so outrageously dear for us Euro users!

Marriage Cert arrived today. Toni was divorced. Charles was stationed at an RCAF camp in Yorkshire.
It's nice to have the little details. Thanks once again to all who helped, especially *Sandra* for that crucial Death Cert.

I couldn't resist teaching you a little Irish, hope you aren't insulted!

regard for someone is MEAS - often a letter in Irish will end with "LE MEAS" = with regard

maidir is more "with regard to" . . "maidir le do litir" = "with regard to your letter"

(just tell me to get lost!!)

le meas,eadaoin!

Hello there
its been seven years since this topic was active, and its breifly mentioned above in post#1 but the young Charles Stewart BRADY of the RCAF on 23 Oct 1941 found himself in the sea off the coast of neutral Ireland after his aircraft crashed.  He was interned with the other crew member who survived in the Irish Army internment camp in the Curragh Army base.  he was released on 18 Oct 1943.

I would love to make contact with any relatives of his.  there are a number of archival documents I have available and links to online accounts of his time interned, etc.

My website is:

best regards

Dennis Burke

Hello Dennis

Sorry for not replying sooner, but i was away until today.
I've certainly looked at your website before, though it's some years ago. I've been trawling though my BRADY stuff, and I have that photo of the crew.

I've read the book "Guests of the State" by T. Ryle Dwyer, which details his internment in the Curragh.
I got some information from Military Archives in Portobello Barracks in Dublin, and of course his cousins (my in-laws) remembered him being in contact.

I'd be delighted for any links you can send me, and I'll answer questions you might have (if they're not private family stuff)

Excellent,

I would love a copy of the Irish Military Archive G2 report if you have it to hand, I am trying to gather them together for each of the 180+ events.

I have at the moment a summary of his wartime RCAF service, not including overseas service and am will tonight again try to extract all the relevant mentions of him in the 434 Squadron ORB (Diary).  His posting in is proving elusive.  I did note that the chap writing the Squadron diary at times mentions when men got married etc, I was hoping to cross reference the date of his wedding with the ORB to see if its mentioned.

If you drop me an email at dp_burke@yahoo.com, I have a few pages from the ORB to send on at least.
regards

Dennis
