Spooner (Cuillerier), Lajoie, Jones, Savoie, Cantin
I had problems with identifying Spooner simply because there was a real Spooner with the Alouettes.
No. 425 Wellington B. Mk. X, “Blues in the Night.”
Left to Right – P/O J.E. Leigh, F/Sgt. R.S. MacKay, Ferdinand le Dressay and P/O C. L. Spooner, 31 August 1943, [PL183303]
Jones was Earl Jones.
He’s all smile on May 10, 1944.
Earl was a ground crew servicing his brother’s Halifax.
At first his brother was an unknown pilot in Réal St-Amour’s album.
Réal St-Amour had not identified him as such, but he was present on several photos.
On this one after a mission I think, but I am still not certain.
During the Second World War more than 116,000 men and women of the Air Forces of the British Commonwealth gave their lives in service. More than 17,000 of these were members of the Royal Canadian Air Force, or Canadians serving with the Royal Air Force. Approximately one-third of all who died have no known grave.
P/O N. Jones RCAF and crew, flying Halifax III LW428 coded KW-C, failed to return from this operation.
