    Default R.C.A.F. Casualties

    G'day

    We have provinces here in Canada. If you go to the Commonwealth War Graves Commission website, www.cwgc.org you will find all you need reference tthe two killed in action.

    Cheers...Chris

    Herbert Reuben Sproule, Los Angeles, California
    James Edward Moran, Toronto, Ontario
    Vincent Deleacey R. Mosseau, Campbell's Bay, Quebec
    Vernon Thomas Hunt, Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario

    Sgt. Dennis does not appear in this list. However, an article accompanying this casualty list states that one of the members of this crew had been a prisoner for only six days before being liberated by American forces, so this probably refers to Dennis because at the time this list was published the other six men were still "missing", their fates unknown.

    (RCAF casualty list 1162, issued 8 April 1945.)
