  1. Came across this while looking for something else. CWGC screwed up on his grave marker and on their site. His name was Gilles, not Gillies. RCAF Casualty Lists have him as “Gilles”, died of injuries sustained on active service overseas.

  2. No. But from the designation “died on active service” it wasn’t war related. LACs weren’t aircrew. Maybe a traffic accident? You can get his file from the LAC in Ottawa. Free.
