Another Airman Who Admired Mosquito Pilots

This is Jean-Paul Corbeil.

He is not with No 23 Squadron.

air gunner RCAF

I met him this afternoon and we talked for almost three hours.

He was a Mid-upper gunner  on a Halifax during the war.He was with the 425 Alouette Squadron.

I asked him what he thought of Mosquito pilots.His eyes filled with admiration. He told me that were the ones who directed them to the targets over Germany.

He told me he heard only twice a Mosquito pilot talking on the radio. He was using a code.

Coca-Cola… Pepsi-Cola…

That was all he heard.

Do you know anything about this?

After, I told him all about Eugène Gagnon and George Stewart.

This is Jean-Paul Corbeil’s crew.

Mister Corbeil is a great humble man… We also talked about another humble man, Eddy Dubois.

I Had to Post This

This is Laurent Dubois’ brother.

I talked about Laurent on my blog Lest We Forget.

Laurent was killed on December 18, 1944. He was part of the RCAF 425 Alouette Squadron based at Tholthorpe

Eddy wrote a comment on my blog and told me he was Laurent’s brother.

He sent me so many pictures of Laurent and of himself.

This is one very special picture.

He flew on a Mosquito in 1945.
