Hi Micky,

I'm so happy to have found your website !!!
I'm looking for my granddad, Haydn Hounam Hopkin who was reported as MIA on 12.2.45.
So I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw his name mentioned in here  :yahoo:
My nana always held out hope that he'd come home,
as a friend of his wrote to her to tell her they'd heard him over the radio after they'd gone down & they were ok !!!
My nana waited. She's 93. My mum, his only child is just turning 70.
It would be utterly wonderful if we could finally bring him home to bury !!!
I cannot tell you how excited I am, if at last I've finally found him...
or rather you !!!  :friends:
I realise it still may not be their plane, but you've found someone's.
Thank you all so much !!!!  :clapping:
i look forward to hearing from any of you involved,
I just can't believe this might finally be it,
thank you thank you thank you !!!
Chloe
