    Default Default Canadians F/O A.E. Gooch, F/L J.H.W. LeBlond, P/O J.G.A. MacKaskill & F/O G.D

    Could anyone provide any more information pertaining to any of the above please. All served with No.1690 B(D)TF at some point, and their service numbers were:

    F/O A.E. Gooch CAN J177868

    F/L J.H.W. LeBlond CAN J12560

    P/O J.G.A. MacKaskill CAN J86106
    F/O G.D. Tuck CAN J17304

    I believe all may have been pilots......

    Any help or advice welcomed.

    Thanks

    Andrew

    Hi All

    Sorry, I missed one of my list. Can anyone provide any more information pertaining to P/O E.S. MacDonald, CAN J19993 pleas? He also served with No.1690 B(D)TF at some point and was, I believe, an air gunner. Many thanks again, Andrew

    Many thanks Chris, very helpful. I'm trying to access the link, but can't seem to find the page. If I pm my email address to you, would you be kind enough to email a pdf or jpg copy please? Thanks again. Andrew

    If you go onto the Canada Gazette Archives site and search for the the issue published on 20th May 1944 it is on Page 2087 or Page 49 of 128 if you download that issue as a PDF

    Hi Chris. Sorry, I don't know what I'm doing wrong! I can see the document but, when I try to download the pdf, it just kicks me back to the search page......

    The Canada Gazette archives I find is a very unstable site. Try using a different browser. I can only get it to work on Edge. Try this link

    Thanks Chris - the link worked and I've now got the document I needed. I'm very grateful - maybe the site doesn't work too well across 'the Pond'! Cheers and thanks again. Andrew
