What more can I say…
November is a good time to remember… what happened in July 1941.
Eugène Gagnon did not die in a plane crash while training in a Fleet Finch like LACs Fetherston and Davie.
I will tell you how he died later.
Eugène Gagnon is on a picture his nephew Jacques Gagnon shared with me in 2011.
At first I thought it was taken at No. 4 Manning Depot in Quebec City. I quickly had identified Eugène.
I had this other picture Jacques Gagnon shared.
There was something written on the back…
Pretty easy to identify who were on it and where it was taken thanks to Eugène.

St. Catharines Ont July 41
In 2011 I had figured the group picture was taken later when Eugène was posted to No. 4 Manning Depot.
I wished I had known Cam Harrod back then. Cam’s father was an instructor with No. 9 EFTS St. Catharines.
