    Default F/Sgt. M.B.St,Louis. RCAF 75 Sqdn.

    Greetings,

    I have been trying to bring up details on F/Sgt. M.B.St.Louis on the CWGC website.

    Trying all sorts of combinations, still no luck.I must be missing out on something.All the others came up OK.

    He was ‘Lost Without Trace’ 10 September 1942 in Wellington III BJ968 of 75 Squadron.

    The information I am after is where in Canada he came from age and the panel number on Runneymede Memorial his name is commemorated on.

    Thanks in anticipation,

    Digger

    I have a copy of the 75 squadron Roll of Honour.
    It mentions Michael Bertram St. Louis RCAF as being on Panel 106 of the Runnymede Memorial.

    A quick look on the Runnymede site found him on page 62 of the S-V section.

    Wayne.

    Thanks Wayne,

    That was quick, you must be around the corner!

    I had gone to the usual search area, How did you get the page number? I went via www.cwgc.org

    Cheers,

    Hi Digger,

    I have the books for the Runnymeade Memorial and Wayne is right he is on Panel 106. His other details you were after are not listed after his name in the book. You could write to the Canadian Archives for his servie details, it takes some time but it is free.

    Regards,

    John.

    Hi Digger,

    try searching CWGC with just "st" in the surname and "M B" in the initials and it will come up.

    Cheers,

    Tom

    TSGNO: "From Eganville, Ontario. Killed in Action Sept. 10/42 age 26."

    He is commemorated on Panel 106 of the Runnymede Memorial.

    Some years ago I looked at his service file on behalf of New Zealand researchers. You may want more details, but at the time I jotted down the following:

Remustered for aircrew training and posted to No.1 WS, Montreal, 20 July 1940 (at this time he is reduced in rank from LAC to AC2). Promoted LAC again, 22 August 1941. Posted from No.1 WS to No.6 BGS, Mountain View, 9 December 1941. To “Y” Depot, Halifax, 7 January 1942. Disembarked in Britain, 9 February 1942. To No.1 Signal School, 12 March 1942.

    I do thank all of you for your help, it is very much appreciated.

    My resaon for asking about the name is that I pick out a name from my 'missing N.Z. airmen' list and try to find out all I can about him and his crew. Not too much time left in my eighties to embark on long projects!

    Cheers,
    Digger
