After waiting 70 years, WWII B-17 gunner, 94, revisits Britain and dies there

Toronto Sun

Melvin Rector

. . . "On May 6, Rector stepped foot on British soil for the first time in 71 years. The group first visited RAF Uxbridge in the London borough of Hillingdon.
"Rector toured Battle of Britain Bunker, an underground command center where fighter airplane operations were directed during D-Day. After climbing back into the sunlight, he told Jowers he felt dizzy. She grabbed one of his arms, and a stranger grabbed the other.
"There, just outside the bunker where Winston Churchill famously said, "Never in the field of human conflict was so much owed by so many to so few," Rector died quietly.
" 'He walked out of that bunker like his tour was done," Jowers said." . . .
