    Default Was F/O Renaud, 174 Sqn, Op. Jericho, Canadian?

    Hi all,
    F/O J.E. Renaud, Typhoon JR133, 174 Sqn, was shot down and became PoW during the operation Jericho 18.2.1944. In the list of the Air Force PoWs 1939 to 1945 compiled by Ross there is J.E.R. Renaud J/26505 (RCAF). Can anybody confirm that the pilot of the JR133 was really Canadian and give his full name?
    Regards
    Mojmir
