Hard to read isn’t?

Hugh kept this letter all his life.

Dean Cahill found it among other earth shattering artifacts. I had a hard time finding who had written Hugh on December 15, 1944.

December 1944 that when Eugene Gagnon joined 23 Squadron. So this is somewhat precious because Eugene Gagnon is the reason I wrote this blog.

I don’t know if Hugh had any children.


In my research yesterday I found Hugh Boland married Miss Tate. I don’t know her first name. What I know though is that a Doreen was much interested in Hugh.


That telegram was sent on April 19, 1943.

Doreen was not the only one interested in Hugh as you can see with this letter from a WAFF.

This looks like a letter from Doreen Oates a WAFF in RAF Colerne.

So Miss Tate who married Hugh can’t be Doreen.
