Dick Kragt was dropped near Epe and Vaassen in the Netherlands in the night of 23rd and 24th June 1943 with the mission to set up an escape line. Was known under the aliasses Lemontree, captain Kay, Frans Hals, Dick and Badsworth.
On parachuting he lost his equipment, including his radio and was only armed with his Colt 45. He managed to contact Joop Piller, a Jewish underground worker living in Emst, with whom he built up a network to hide, protect and smuggle downed airmen out of occupied territory.
