Thank You both BFBSM and Temujin, that is the only Royal Canadian Navy Fallen Warrior that I had a question on, the rest I was able to find. Do either of you know where I might be able to find Americans that served in the Royal Canadian Navy that survived the war ????

Cheers, and Thanks again !!!!!!!

George, found this article.....and at the bottom you see that the RCN did not keep track of “American’s” in its service......that’s probably why I’m have a trouble finding ANY of them (except the two names I gave you before).......also, I found a article (did not post it) that said the RCN reported their was NO AMERICAN’s serving in it.......which we know is not true, as we now of a least TWO
