Windsor Mills September 1942

November is a good time to remember… what happened on September 5, 1942.

Students Pilots Lost Lives As Planes Crashed in Mid-Air

First accident at No. 4 EFTS Windsor Mills…

Two LACs: Thomas B. Fetherston and James Robertson Davie. They never went overseas.

They are buried in Prospect Cemetery in Toronto.

Most instructors and staff pilots with BCATP were desperately wanting to go overseas and fight the nazis like Eugène Gagnon did when he enlisted in 1941.

Who is Eugène Gagnon?

I will tell you next time.
