On Sunday, 17 June at 7pm, Dirk Decuypere will speak at Ottawa's Pinhey's Point Historic Site about his research identifying and recovering WW2 aircraft including three Canadians commemorated by the Commonwealth War Graves Commission in Belgium in 2017. 
One was Lieut. Lindsay Drummond a descendant of the Pinhey family who was shot through the heart on the evening of May 18,1917 while attacking a German observation balloon.
Dirk Decuypere, co-founder of the aviation archaeology group Huyghe-Decuypere in West Flanders, undertook a five year project to obtain their CWGC recognition.
