"The switch: Bent Anthonisen gives Mrs. Balaam a switch from the Rear Turret of the Lancaster her brother was sitting in when he was killed. It is quite certain
that he touched this switch just before he died."
Sister had a last contact to her brother.
Memorial ceremony: Relatives from England are happy that fallen members of their families have now been identified 55 years after the war. By Lars Kamstrup.

Five fallen British airmen of World War II were commemorated at
Lemvig Kirkegård - Cemetery, as the at long last have been identified after 55 years.
The relatives attended the funeral service to the airman who was found a short time ago in the wreckage of a Lancaster in the Ringkøbing Fjord and the dedication of
the gravestones to four others who crashed at Remmerstrand.
The relatives were moved but also very satisfied that they finally know where members of their family were laid to rest.
And to Mrs. Balaam, who is the sister of Reginald Whellams who was found in the Ringkøbing Fjord, it turned out to be a special experience, as Bent Anthonisen of
Ringkøbing could give her a switch from the rear turret. Whellams was the Rear Gunner here, and it is quite certain that he touched that switch just before he was
killed in the crash."
