    Hello all,
    I’m working on a new episode for the UK History Channel, about the Munich Plane Crash – we’re starting way back in 1941, and following the threads of the progression of both Manchester United and the aviation industry during and post WWII all the way up to 1958, and how a chain of events unravelled to result in the tragic incident.

    I am looking for a keen fan, who followed the Busby Babes’ progress through the early 50s, and remembers hearing the devastating news on the day of the crash, who we can interview (on camera) for the episode. I’m keen to find someone who will really bring to life the excitement and atmosphere that surrounded the team, and illustrate the fervour and following they inspired.

    I’d be really grateful to hear from anyone who might be able to help. My name is Maddy, and my email address is:

    It was a great team, champions in England, and semi finals in Europe. And they became all legends, especially Duncan Edwards. I am certain United would have won the European cup, and Big Dunc would have won the Ballon d`Or.
    Keep their memory alive!

    I only wish I could have seen those lads play. As long as I live, they will be in my thoughts and in my heart.

    I served with Eddie Colman in 7th.Trng. Regt Royal Signals at Catterick Garrison, Yorks 1955/56. He was the unit rat-catcher.He always got the weekends off to play for Utd. A true gentleman always found the time to play five a side in the unit gym. Always left us standing. R.I.P.

  7. A day of sadness hard to recall – without goodbyes they left us all.

    Always remembered, never forgotten, just happy young boys who loved the game, loved their club, loved their countries. No pretentiousness, no cockiness – just lads who lived and played the game the right way. Sleep on in your peace dear “Babes”.
