Souvenons-nous…

Souvenons-nous is the French translation for Lest we forget…

I had decided to translate some parts of my blog Souvenirs de guerre in English as a way to find more information about sailors that were aboard the Athabaskan.

Most were anglophones, but some were francophones and Quebecers.

This is one of them…

His name is Louis Ledoux.

I found his photo on the Canadian veterans Website. It is the Canadian Virtual War Memorial.

These photos were also found on the site…

Louis died on April 29, 1944. He was 20.

Louis is buried the Plouescat communal cemetery in Finistere, France.

You can write to me by clicking here if you have more information on Able Seaman Louis Ledoux.

Tomorrow I will talk about Stuart Alexander Kettles. He was a sailor on the Athabaskan and he was taken prisoner by the Germans.
