This is post no. 126.
If you are interested in 23 Squadron a little known Mosquito Squadron in the RAF during World War II, then you should read this blog from the start.
One post a day will take you more than four months. Of course you don’t have to read everything.
But then you will miss a lot of great stories…
Just use the search engine and type in a name of someone you know who could have been related to that squadron. That how people find about their relatives.
Diane Carlucci was the first one to do so.
Members of the Gosling family also found it.
Robert Harris is one of the latest to have done so. His father was Eugène Gagnon’s navigator.
R. C. Harris
He can now share with all of us what stories his father told him about 23 Squadron.
I don’t have any relatives related to 23 Squadron. In fact I never knew that squadron existed in the first place.
I owe it all to this man. He wanted me to help him find more about his hero when he was young.
Marcel Bergeron, who is now 85 years old, is seen here in front of Eugène Gagnon’s Republic Seabee.
Eugène died on October 21, 1947. Very little was known about Eugène during WWII. So I started looking in 2010 and wrote about it here on this blog.
Everything is on this blog!
But this blog is not just only about Eugène Gagnon a little know French-Canadian Mosquito pilot, it’s about all those whose relatives are sharing what they know about 23 Squadron and thus will keep this squadron operational forever.
