I met someone who wrote me a comment on my French blog Souvenirs de guerre.
She is the daughter of Group Captain Tony Brassard. She wants to write a book about her father. Group Captain Brassard was with the 425th Alouettes. Jean-Maurice was also with the 425th Alouettes and a book has been writtent about him.
Come back next time for the story.
