This is Eugène Gagnon in July 1945.
This picture was sent to me by the son of Tommy Smith, a No. 23 Squadron Mosquito pilot.
His story is amazing.
He served with Eugène Gagnon.
Tommy Smith died in 2006.
His son knew little about his father in the RAF. His father mostly talked about his fellow airmen.
His son is writing a book on No. 23 Squadron.
Next time, I will tell you how I met him.
Eugène Gagnon DFC
The hero who is less and less unknown in Bromptonville
