Diane is lending me a helping hand with the pictures her father took during WW II.
Here’s one for the gipper…
Diane told me who these airmen were.
Top row: Roger Vincent A.G., Phil Roch B.A., Boyer M.
Bottom row: Charles Filion P., Roland Piquette W.A.G.
Who are these men?
To me it seems that they are the crew of a bomber.
With the abbreviations beside the names, I can figure out that Roger Vincent is the air gunner, Phil Roch is the bombaimer. I would venture to say that Boyer M. is M. Boyer and is also part of this crew. Charles Filion is the pilot and Roland Piquette the wireless-operator and an air gunner.
These airmen were not flying Mosquitos.
Who are these airmen?
I found someone named Maurice Boyer on the Virtual Canadian War Memorial…
