Room mates suspected something, but nothing was traced inspite of efforts. orderly officer and station commander notified. Large search made with no results.

    Hi all,

    LUCIER, Marwood Francis - W/O2 - P/2389 - RCAF - Ottawa Memorial, Ontario, Canada.

    It is felt that WO2 Lucier met his death by accidental drowning somewhere between 0500 and 1000hrs 26. 5. 1946 in the Goose River by being accidently thrown from the boat which he was endeavouring to take up stream.

    WO2 Lucier was a member of a cmaping party of service personnel who were spending the holiday weekend of 24 May at the M.T. cabin on Goose River. At the time of the accident WO2 Lucier was not on duty.
