honoring you...

Thank you for your service to our country so long ago sir. The remembrance from Bev Lowe is poignant and reflects the anguish experienced by so many families that lost loved ones in this war. May you rest in eternal peace.

MIA Bracelet posted 3/1/19

Hullo from Australia. I noticed that your kind offer to forward an MIA bracelet appeared directly after my last but one post but I'm unsure if you intended it for us or as a more open offer. We have tried to find more information on the whereabouts and current status in locating the remains of Denis Carter (and his team mates) over the years but to no avail. Certainly there seemed to be a considerable amount of covering up in the days/weeks and more after this event, so perhaps no one will ever know what really went down, let alone live long enough to see their remains returned to the country they served. If you intend the bracelet to come to us we would be honoured to receive it and if not, then I hope that whoever it does go to wears it with pride. I wonder how you came to know about Denis - perhaps you knew him or perhaps, like us, you also served and wanted to honor him. Thank you so much for your remembrance. Kind regards from Kim

For Bev Lowe

Bev, I saw your posting just now (we are in Australia) and it made me feel better knowing that Denis did in fact have a family who loved him, but also sad that they never got over his death. For parents to lose a child always seems such dreadful news - to never know where he lay must have been just the worst outcome possible. Thank you for your continued remembrance. Sadly Denis' remains have never been located - nor those of his team mates. All we can do is honor them by never forgetting their service. Should you wish to get in touch I'm leaving my email address here. We have always wondered about Denis' background and his years before he joined up. Best regards from Kim
