    Toon Peeters, popularly known as blacksmith Toontje, was a blacksmith and bicycle dealer. [1]
    Cammaert writes about him:
    In Broekhuizen and Broekhuizenvorst the teacher J.H. van Megen, in collaboration with A. Reijnders and P.A.J. Peeters, founded the LO. [2]
    The Oranjehotel writes: spied for the Allies, provided aid to pilots, Jews, etc. [3] and to escaped prisoners of war. [1]
    Arrested on November 16, 1943, as a result of betrayal by the provocateur Vastenhout [2] (the Englandspiel) and finally sentenced to “Nacht und Nebel” (night and fog) [4], which meant making resisters disappear without a trace. Stayed in various camps, returned in May 1945 and died in hospital in Venlo as a result of his privations. [5]
