    GAUDET, John Leonard - AC1c - R/54703 - RCAF.

    His RCAF service record states "Killed as the result of an automobile accident".

    The letter of RCAF Technical Training School, St. Thomas, Ontario, CO states: "The cause of the accident is obscure at the moment, but it appears that a private car in which your son was a passenger left the road and struck a tree at about 8.15 zhis morning, the impact causing instant death."
