Bomber survivor's wish to be buried with crew
By Michelle MacAFEE, Canadian Press
Epe, Netherlands -- For 61 years, Michael CASSIDY wondered why he survived the crash of his Halifax bomber in a Dutch field where five of his fellow crewmates died.
Losing altitude after its nose was sheared off by a Canadian bomber the night of April 24, 1944, the plane's two right engines were hit by German fire, prompting pilot Doug WATTERSON to order his crew to bail out.
CASSIDY, a tail gunner from the Ottawa area, struggled to find his parachute in the dark and wiggled his way out of the slim opening in the turret he could push out with his feet against the air pressure.
The image seered in his memory as he left the plane was of the silhouettes of four of his six crewmates standing motionless in the plane as he jumped -- having assumed they had already escaped.
Moments later he hit the ground and soon saw the wreckage of his downed craft burning a few fields away near the village of Zuilichem.
Those final moments of what was his third flight over German-occupied territory with the 420 Snowy Owl Royal Canadian Air Force Squadron never left him, and now -- six weeks after his death in Toronto of prostate cancer at age 81 -- CASSIDY's wish to be buried with his crew is about to be fulfilled.
His widow, Jana CASSIDY, planned to travel to Zuilichem in southern Holland with her husband's ashes yesterday for a full military burial tomorrow.
"They were his brothers in arms," CASSIDY said in an interview from Toronto as she prepared to leave for Holland with her mother, brother and some of CASSIDY's 10 surviving children.
"You put your life in the hands of the six people with you and they did the same thing because their actions determined whether you lived or died. They depended on each other."
CASSIDY, 28, who spent four years with her husband, said his lost Friends were very much a fixture in his mind and heart.
"We'd be just out walking or something and what he would think, even so many years later, was 'What could we have done to save all our lives,' recalled CASSIDY.
"It was this reconsidering of what they could have done differently, it would still be very real in his mind."
Michael CASSIDY, who had beaten back prostate cancer the first time last year, had until recently been planning on joining the more than 1,300 Canadian veterans who arrived in the Netherlands yesterday to take part in a week of events to commemorate the 60th anniversary of the country's liberation from German occupation.
The group, many of whom are in their mid- to late-80s, are gearing up for an ambitious agenda that includes visits to two large Canadian war cemeteries and a parade expected to draw as many as 350,000 Dutch citizens to the streets of Apeldoorn.
The Netherlands campaign stretched out over nine months and claimed 7,600 lives.
Michael CASSIDY's sister, Pat SEED, said her brother longed to be a pilot, but volunteered to be a tail gunner because he worried the war would be won before he'd get to see action.
"He never seemed to be scared or anything," SEED, 75, said in an interview from Ottawa, recalling the many letters she exchanged with her older brother.
"He was just excited and knew he was fighting for his own loved ones at home."
CASSIDY's plane crash caused some anxious weeks at the family's home in Brittania Bay, now a suburb of Ottawa, as the first telegram listed him as missing before a second followed to report he had been taken prisoner.
Jana CASSIDY, recounting her husband's own story with help from audio tapes he recorded long before his death and from their own conversations, said that following the crash, CASSIDY eluded the Germans for three days by heading south in stocking feet.
He was captured trying to cross a bridge over the River Waal and after several weeks of interrogation on suspicion he was a spy, he was sent to a prison in Holland.
There, he met the only other survivor of the Halifax bomber crash, mid-upper gunner Ray TANNER, who was turned over to the Germans after surviving the crash.
The two remained close Friends until TANNER's death about 15 years ago.

Mike CASSIDY, Businessman And Publisher 1923-2005
In 1944, he survived the destruction of his Halifax bomber over wartime Holland, Sandra MARTIN writes. Now, 61 years later, his remains will cross the Atlantic to join his long-dead crewmates in their Dutch graves
Saturday, April 9, 2005, Page S9
He was a small-time entrepreneur, a newspaperman and the devoted father of 10 children, yet it was the two years that Mike CASSIDY spent overseas fighting the Germans that had the greatest influence on his life. He was a tail gunner, a famously endangered species during the air battles of the Second World War, but he survived to become a prisoner of war. For the rest of his life he lamented the deaths of his crew members, going so far as to receive special permission to be buried next to their graves in a small village in Holland.
Bryan Michael CASSIDY was born in Ottawa in 1923, the only son and middle child of Charles and Marjorie CASSIDY. In the Depression, the family moved to Britannia Bay, then a summer cottage area on the Ottawa River and now a suburb of Ottawa. It was an ideal place for a boy to grow up, sailing in summer and skiing in winter. His younger sister, Patricia (Pat) SEED, remembers Bryan, as he was always called at home, asking for fashion advice before he went out and then knocking on her bedroom door to fill her in on all the details after he came home.
His father served overseas with the Canadian army at Ypres and Vimy Ridge during the First World War, and enlisted once again in the Second World War, which may help to explain his son's eagerness to sign up as well. Initially, he was rejected by the air force because he only had high school graduation and not senior matriculation. He applied instead to the army and was going to join the tank corps when the air force relaxed its requirements.
He joined up in February, 1943, was sent to training camp in Mont Joli, Quebec, and shipped overseas seven months later. Mike CASSIDY yearned to be a pilot, but volunteered to be a tail gunner because he feared the war would be over before he joined the fighting if he waited to be called up as a pilot.
He was assigned to the 420 Snowy Owl Royal Canadian Air Force Squadron based in Yorkshire, England. The squadron was equipped with the Handley Page Halifax heavy bomber. Similar in design to the famous Lancaster, the smaller Halifax was the aircraft in which Canadian aircrew flew 70 per cent of their wartime operations. In all, about 4,000 were built, the most powerful being the durable Halifax III night bomber.
After a series of training flights, Mr. CASSIDY started flying over German-occupied territory in April, 1944. On his third mission, his Halifax III completed its run over Karlsrube, Germany, early on the morning of April 25, and was heading home when the nose of the plane was sheared off after colliding with another Canadian bomber.
In vain, pilot Doug WATTERSON tried to steer the damaged bomber back to Britain. German Luftwaffe planes spotted the Halifax and started firing, knocking out two of the plane's engines. Later, Mr. CASSIDY, remembered fearing the worst and thinking, "It's going to be strange to be dead."
The pilot gave the order to bail out as the plane reared and tumbled toward the ground. At first, Mr. CASSIDY had trouble locating his parachute, which had become stuck in the ceiling of the plane, but finally he got it on. He dived out head first. Moments after he pulled the rip cord, the plane exploded and then crashed into the ground near the small Dutch village of Zuilichem. He and Ray TANNER, the upper gunner, survived, but the rest of the crew died, either in the mid-air explosion or from the impact when the plane hit the ground.
Tail gunners had an appalling survival rate because they were obvious and exposed targets in their Plexiglas spheres set into the belly of the bombers. Randall Jarrell wrote a short eloquent poem, The Death of the Ball Turret Gunner, about the horrific fate that awaited so many of them.
From my mother's sleep I fell into the State,
And I hunched in its belly till my wet fur froze.
Six miles from earth, loosed from its dream of life,
I woke to black flak and the nightmare fighters.
When I died they washed me out of the turret with a hose.
Mr. CASSIDY's sister Pat was 16 when the delivery boy peddled up to her parents' house carrying the ominous telegram saying Bryan was missing in action. "We only had a summer Catholic church in Britannia," she said, "and I took the streetcar into Ottawa to go to St. George's Church to pray that he would be all right, and the church was locked."
Both Mr. CASSIDY and Mr. TANNER eluded the Germans for about three days by surviving on chocolate bars and on water from the dikes. They were captured crossing one of the bridges over the River Waal. Mr. CASSIDY refused to give any information other than name, rank and serial number, according to his widow Jana CASSIDY. At first mistaken for spies, the two men were eventually interned in the first of several PoW camps in Germany, Poland and East Prussia before being liberated in 1945 after Germany surrendered.
"It was the biggest day of my life," Mrs. SEED said of waiting at the train station in Ottawa for her brother to disembark after his demobilization. "He made such a fuss that the newspaper people came over and asked if I was his girlfriend."
After the war, Mr. CASSIDY attended Carleton University and began his civilian life as a proof-reader at The Ottawa Citizen. He was an old-style, hard-drinking newspaperman, who had a successful run as a financial reporter for Dun and Bradstreet, before venturing into restaurant franchising and automation in Toronto, including San Francesco Sandwiches, the Longhorn Restaurant and vending machines.
In the 1960s, he operated a business in Montreal called C.F. Industries and Sparkomatic, selling electrode sparkplugs, but the political climate in Quebec worried him, and in the early 1970s he moved back to Toronto, where he launched The Press Journal with a partner. After its collapse, he started the quarterly magazine Press Review, a digest of news, awards and articles about journalism in Canada. He kept it going for more than 25 years, continuing to work as publisher after his diagnosis with prostate cancer last year.
His friend Ken BARRATT, who has known him since the early 1970s, remembers hearing about the hardships Mr. CASSIDY endured as a prisoner of war. With the Russians advancing from the east, the Germans forced the PoWs to walk as much as 60 kilometres a day. A big issue was finding enough food to eat.
Although they were a generation apart in age, the two men got along so well that Mr. CASSIDY sent him a fragment from a piece of his downed airplane, which local resident Peter Stoel had recovered from the bank of the River Waal. The salvaged parts of the plane were given to Mr. CASSIDY when he returned to Holland in 1995 to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the end of the war.
He married several times, twice to the same woman. "He kept making mistakes," his sister Pat said. "I was close enough to him to voice my opinion, but it was his life."
He met his last wife, Jana, about seven years ago. They were married about three years ago and she worked with him on Press Review until the end. "She took very good care of him while he was ill," Mrs. SEED said.
Mrs. CASSIDY is planning to fly to Holland the first week of May, with as many of the family as can make it, to bury her husband's ashes in the village of Zuilichem in a tomb next to the graves of the rest of the downed crew. "He always felt that he should have died with them," Mrs. CASSIDY said.
In an interview in The Toronto Sun in 1999, Mr. CASSIDY talked about his trips back to Holland, his guilt at having survived when his crewmates died, and his wish to be buried next to them. "When I first went back, in 1985, I had the feeling this is where I should have been," he told journalist Joe Warmington. "We lived together, ate together and we became closer than our own relatives."
The graves of the five crew who were killed in the crash have been maintained by the villagers. Every year, on May 5, they gather to remember the sacrifices these young Canadians made for their freedom. This time, on the 60th anniversary of the liberation of Holland, Mr. CASSIDY will finally rejoin his flight crew.
Mr. CASSIDY's widow is planning to continue publishing Press Review. The next issue, which is due out some time in June, will be a tribute to her husband.
Michael Bryan CASSIDY was born in Ottawa on August 13, 1923. He died of prostate cancer at St. Michael's Hospital in Toronto on March 17, 2005. He was 81. He is survived by his wife, Jana, 10 children from previous marriages, his sister Patricia and many grandchildren.

I Remember -- Mike CASSIDY
By Patrick SULLIVAN, Tuesday, April 12, 2005, Page S7
Patrick SULLIVAN of Richmond, Ontario, writes about Mike CASSIDY, whose obituary appeared on Saturday.
In May of 1985, Mike CASSIDY and I rented a car in Amsterdam and drove to a village called Zuilichem. We were in the Netherlands to mark the same occasion -- the 40th anniversary of VE Day -- but for very different reasons. I was there to write about it for Legion Magazine. Mike was there to remember five Friends.
Mike was a talkative guy, but as we neared Zuilichem he said less and less. By the time we found the cemetery, he was silent. I left him on his own as he walked to the cluster of five graves, knelt, and made the sign of the cross.
The five men buried there -- their ages were 19 to 24 -- had been on Mike's Halifax bomber in April of 1944 when it was badly damaged in a mid-air collision and then shot down by German night fighters. Only Mike and the mid-upper gunner, Ray TANNER, got out.
As Mike knelt in front of the graves, the strangest thing happened. People started to arrive at the cemetery as if in response to some silent broadcast. They stood back a respectful distance as Mike prayed. When he stood up, they crowded around and explained how, the day before, more than a hundred of them, led by the mayor and school children, had placed tulips, daffodils and carnations on the graves.
Later, as we drove back to our hotel, Mike said: "The boys are well looked after."
