    Hello

    Thank you dennis and Col.

    The reason of my request is that he is the only member of the crew
    that I do not have a photo.
    The history of the crew is almost complete.

    As he was from Nothe Bay I asked the local news paper
    if they could look at their archives but all their archives are at the NorthBay Library.

    I do have a press cutting regarding that he is missing this include a photo
    but it is very bad copy.

    It is why I put this request to the forum hoping that a member live in the area
    and could have a look and if the is a good copy to make a photo of the article.

    Thank you for your help

    best regards

    hello Col

    Yes you wright.

    That the reason why I am seeking some help
    from possible canadian members living in the area.

    It is for me a big deception since the history covers for the time 130 pages (computer page)

    and i do have photos from all the other members of the crew.

    If unfortunately it does not work i will close the history

    An another chance ??

    Do the Canadian Force would provide the photo when F/sgt draper joint the Air force ?

    Best regards

    Hi Rene

    There is a Canadian researcher who visits this board fairly frequently and he has done a lot of work on compiling biographies for RCAF veterans. He is "HughAHalliday" I feel sure he would respond if you sent him a personal mail.

    Hi Rene,

    I've dealt with the library there on a couple of occasions. They did a couple of Nugget look ups for me.

    One of the moderators on this site, Chris Charland, aka "Dakota", should be able to help you.
