Born in 1947 Retired teacher and historian, I have published several books about life during the XVII and XVIII centuries. Son of a former prisoner of war who remained in captivity during five years, I wanted to relate to his military records between 1939 and 1945. Little by little, I arrived at the war memorial of the village where the list of the Canadian aviators is kept. I felt like making these young men who died during a night of September 1942 known. I also appealed to some volunteers to find tracks and I think if it normal to collaborate to a project like yours.


The project relies solely on volunteer help. If you believe you can help in any way (photographing, admin, sponsorship, etc) then please contact us. If you would like to help with the photography please download the Guidance and Volunteer policy PDF via link on the volunteers page.
