Hello All:

The British Columbia Aviation Museum has completed a listing of the approximately 180 airmen killed, through whatever circumstances, while serving at Patricia Bay, BC, during the Second World War. A Lost Airmen of the Empire memorial has since been created and the Museum is now compiling biographies for each of those lost.

They are short on information for the following airmen and would appreciate any details regarding:

- a photo
- occupation before service
- date of arrival in Canada
- any training in Canada prior to arriving at Patricia Bay

Any additional information would be welcome too. The circumstances of their losses are known.
