The wartime record of SS Leon deGrelle is well know and therefore, not necessary to reprint here.  He was a strong and supportive Member and even though writing back and forth with him was difficult, we still kept in contact until his untimely and tragic death.

All letters had to pass through a friend of his in another city because deGrelle was under two death sentences in his native country, and so had to be careful not to let anyone know where he actually did live.

                       

His life ended suddenly some years ago.  Some believe it was a broken heart after being lied to and betrayed by people he trusted, others theorize that his political enemies got tired of waiting for the Netherlands to find him and bring him back for his death sentence and assassinated him.

Whatever the case, Leon deGrelle was always friendly and helpful to Sharkhunters.
