Care for the fallen
HORSENS - The Australian Ambassador to Denmark John Burgess
and Mrs. Burgess yesterday
They had been invited to Horsens by grocer Ole Kraul who is
the historian behind the shooting
First John Burgess and Mrs. Burgess visited the old Town Hall
to see the beautiful embroidery made
Later the Ambassador and his wife had a small lunch in the new Town Hall where the leader of the Municipal administration Ove Have Jørgensen briefed them. Here the Ambassador mentioned that his embassy issues about 10,000 visas a year to Danes who visit his country. Only a small part of them are emigrants.
In the Town Hall he received a present from the town and in his short speech of thanks he said that he will return next year to attend the memorial ceremonies to the airmen who crashed near Horsens.
Yesterday Ole Kraul accompanied the Ambassador and his wife -
first to the memorial stone near Aale to the
perished crew members from a Lancaster (LAN ME663)
The party went on to Vestbirk where they met Anna and Anton
Mikkelsen who tend a memorial stone here (to the
crew of LAN W4330).
