The following link in German talks about that 70 years after the pilot went missing close to Tirana, Albania in 1944 his 92 year old sister receiving his wedding ring. Following a rough translation: “In 1960, a local chap found the wreckage of the Halifax and a finger with this ring about 40 km north of Tirana. Because he feared that the local authorities at the time would not appreciate his story and what he found he kept it all at home. Instead and many years later he asked his son to find his family. The British Embassy in Tirana finally identified the pilot and informed the family accordingly. A box with the bits of the Halifax and the ring finally came home.” http://www.t-online.de/nachrichten/panorama/menschen-schicksale/id_73202154/britischer-kampfpilot-nach-70-jahren-identifiziert.html Stefan.
