Re: Percy Edwin Spence DFC

I also found a listing for,

S/L Percy Edwin (Eddie) Spence, DFC RCAF Sydney

At a site for Cape Bretoners in World War Two,

https://sites.google.com/site/nominallist/

This one seems to be of a maple leaf. https://www.flickr.com/photos/ianjmase/8124577850/in/photolist-7xZ9nn-do1f4Q-do4zuu-dnWusH-dnFgS7-dnWzWs-dnWunx-9FpC7n-dnWuqc-cr3oDQ-cqudKq-cpxjbq-8H9...
