Maurice Rousseau is Philippe’s brother.
Maurice is buried alongside Philippe.
Maurice as well as Philippe were war heroes
They are also unknown war heroes.
I don’t believe they were ever decorated.
This is the info found on the Canadian Virtual War Memorial site…

Someone had sent a picture of Maurice Rousseau…
The picture is not Maurice but Philippe.
Someone mixed up the two brothers.
This is Maurice.
