A Bad Penny Always Comes Back

On December 6, 2006 "A Bad Penny Always Comes Back" author Glen Mitchell was interviewed on Take Five hosted by Catherine Behrendt and Stephanie Webb, weekdays at 4:30pm on WZZM 13, Grand Rapids, Michigan.

Glen is reading his book at two Grand Rapids schools on December 7, 2006. Grand Rapids has a large Dutch community so there will likely be considerable interest in Glen's book.

During the Second World War, the people of Holland were starving. Near the end of the war in 1945, a brave crew of Royal Canadian Air Force men, led by Windsor pilot Bob Upcott, flew to Holland in their Lancaster "Bad Penny," and "bombed" the fields of Holland with food so the people could eat. As in the old saying, "... like a bad penny, it keeps coming back," Bad Penny always returned from her missions. A boy named Peter was one of the many Dutch children saved by Bad Penny and her crew.
