On the cairn are two brass plaques, the one on the East side (left in photo) commemorates the co-operation between the USA and Canada during the war. The other plaque lists the names of two airmen who were killed in the crash of Cessna Crane W1610 on February 17, 1941, in the valley near that location. The two airmen were R56882 Sergeant Alfred Emile Regimbal from Wood Mountain, Saskatchewan, a pilot age 22. The other airman was R67694 LAC Quenton Burl Chace from Wichita, Kansas, USA, age 20. Both airmen were from No.3 SFTS, Calgary, Alberta. LAC Chace was killed just before he graduated. The cairn seems to be well looked after, the grass has been cut and the whole area was neat and tidy when we stopped to photograph it. A sign at the side of the highway lists it as a "point of interest".

There were three aircrew and one passenger aboard. Shortly after take-off and over the Atlantic Ocean about 50 miles from Gander the oil supply to the Hudson’s starboard engine failed. The pilot, Captain Joseph Mackey, attempted to shut down the engine and to feather the propeller (i.e.-the blades are rotated parallel to the airflow in order to reduce the drag if an engine fails) but found that it would not feather. The decision to head back to Gander was made, but then the port engine failed in a similar manner. Hudson T9449 crashed in trees near Seven Mile Pond Lake; the navigator, RAFVR Flying Officer Wil ....Read More.||Jagan on 10th May 2019 11:35:39|
