Hello Rose. Do you know the Heath family or have you kindly looked Jacks records up. I am in Holland at the moment visiting my fathers grave and found that Moira sister of Jack must have visited his grave in the past 2 weeks I believe. Would so much like to find her

Moira Heath
7 October 2013
Getting ready to head back to the airport for our flight home — at Novotel Amsterdam Airport

OR coincidence ?????

Too young to be his sister



John Report 8 May 2014 20:47

Hello Fairhorn. Possibly the Moira Heath at the airport Amsterdam Oct 2013 could be a niece but then the Moira who visited Jonkerbos must have been in the last few weeks because tulips had be placed on his grave, flowers gone but the leaves still looked green and it stated on a card, At last I have found you my darling brother Jack. Have you any ideas as to how I can start looking other than this site. Any lead will be appreciated, Thanks

Moira is mentioned at school in newspapers winning prizes plus looks like her mum was also in the local newspaper

Caroline Heath of Abbott Street, 59 in 1954.

Caroline and Timothy J Heath of Abbott Street showing on various ER's throughout the years. Cannot see a Moira, though.

Timothy John Heath is in quite a few trees on ancestry, including one with his date of death. No children showing, though.

Worth looking on mundia if you do not belong to ancestry?

Thank you everyone, I feel as I may be getting somewhere with all your help. Found a Moira Heath on Facebook who was 80 in 2012 , possible lead, awaiting replies now from Australia, so,fingers crossed. Hope I find the Heath family because I have so much to tell them and Jack Heaths crew, my father being one of them . At the moment I am out in Holland visiting the 7 crew members graves. Met 3 eyewitnesses of the crash in 1943, just amazing. My father was the only Englishman in the crew , 5 from Australia and 1 from Rhodesia.
