    In a commemoration programme on Belgian tv some years ago the Belgian survivors were listed; among them was someone named 'Aspeslagh'. I have not been able to find the name in the lists of your site. Jan Aspeslagh Antwerp Belgium

    I read assistant plateman Georges Asperlach was 27 and born in Switzerland, living in London. A source in Belgium has it his name was ASPESLAGH and was Belgian, living in Ostend. That does noet exclude the possibility that he wasborn in Switzerland and had moved to London by 1912. Can anyone provide more details on this crew member ? Thanks Herman De Wulf Belgium
