Unknown Pilot – Redux

LAC Jones reminded me of Gilles Poudrette.

These pictures came from Eugène Gagnon’s collection.

Eugène Gagnon is not on them.

Only a name is written at the back…

Only a name just like Eugène Gagnon was just a name back in 2010.

Just a name… 

I wonder who is Gilles Poudrette.

I have always wonder if this is Gilles Poudrette’s headstone…
