The Association was greatly saddened to learn of the death of William Albertyn on Tuesday 12th December. 

William was instrumental in commemorating the P/O Dukelow crew lost over Belgium on 21/21 May 1944 on the operation to Duisburg.
Representatives of the 550 Squadron Association have visited Sint Niklaas any times over the years to participate in the commemorations that William organised there. On every occasion the visitors from the UK and Canada have been so warmly welcomed by William and Denise. Relatives of the crew have often visited and become firm friends with William, Denise and the many people in Sint Niklaas who have done so much to remember the crew. See Sint Niklaas Commemorations.
William's funeral was held on Saturday 23rd December 2023 at 10am in the church in Sint Niklaas.
