St-François-Xavier airport 1943

NOTAM

THIS PICTURE IS NOT OF A MOSQUITO AT ST-FRANÇOIS-XAVIER AIRPORT IN 1943

I just typed Eugène Gagnon Mosquito on Google…

WRONGLY IDENTIFIED

This picture was posted by Mario Hains.

He is the one who has helped me in finding information about Eugène Gagnon.

You must say to yourself…

Man, he must be famous in his hometown.

I am sorry to say this but not to many people know this war hero.

It is like that here in Québec.

Most war heroes are alone and forgotten.

A veteran told me just that and a book was also written about this fact…

The man on the book cover is Raymond Meloche.

He was a sailor on HMCS Athabaskan. He was taken prisoner. He was one of the lucky one of the Unlucky Lady…

As for Eugène Gagnon, his sister threw everything in the garbage, logbook, medals and all.

Lest we forget…
