My new car

One more reason to pay homage to all who served.

Bagotville… Those Who Died

Walter Neil Dove was at Bagotville when a pilot died.

This is a picture of the media display at the museum in Bagotville I visited this summer.

They were just names on a computer screen.

This is the logbook page from July 10 through July 21.

This is the next logbook page from July 21 to July 31, 1943.

collection Walter Neil Dove

Wally Dove did not fly on August 2, but Sergeant I. H. W. Franks from New Zeland course 14 did.

Sergeant Ian Harry Walter, son of Thomas Frederick Franks and of Cora Elizabeth Grey Franks (nee Keig) of Taranaki, New Zealand, while on Rhubarb crashed into Lac. St. Jean.
