The Lancaster and her Crew

Harry Verhees - Vught-Holland 2004




As a boy so many times, I heard you flying over at night


And saw your dark shadow in the silvery moonlight.


The sound of your engines was so determined and strong.


Your heavy lethal load scared me often so much


But you were my friends, I knew that for sure.




Fighting for our freedom so high in the sky


The dangerous missions that you had to fly.


So many brave airmen sadly lost their lives


To give us the freedom we live in today.


No words can express or simply explain


My great admiration for the crew of the Lancaster plane.
