My Name is Ross Stewart I am the Curator of a new museum at RAF Wethersfield I read with a smile from the American Patriot that Col Bud and Doris considered RAFW the best assignment. I wish I had met Col Bud, Doc Blanchard and other heroes of this Base. There are Displays for them and a Memorial Wall for those that died in service with the 20th.

I wish all to know Col Bud Day is remembered and honoured here at RAF Wethersfield. Maybe a member of his family will visit one day....

Thank you MR. Day , rest in peace

I wore your bracelet for several years while you were captive, I saw you walk off that plane bringing you home, I sent you the bracelet with your name on it. I am so proud to have seen you return, god bless you and your family. It saddens me to know your gone.

Having lived in this area for many years I thought of Colonel Day as one of us. I always followed with interest the many activities he was involved with as he continued to serve his community and fellow citizens. The week of his death I sat each morning with the newspaper and read about his accomplishments...the joys and sorrows that his family endured and I was moved to tears each morning as I read about this true hero of a man. I was so honored that his family allowed us to share in and...
