Americans in the RCAF

Post by Ludford 101 » Thu Nov 15, 2018 10:16 pm

Over the past couple of weeks I have been looking up and adding next of kin and hometowns to the 938 men in 6 Group RCAF whose entries in the CWGC do not have any NOK or hometowns. This is for a friend of mine in the UK who is determined to get it right for some upcoming books.

In doing that I came across the following men, all Americans as proven by their birth certificates, RCAF applications, marriage licenses and pro formas sent to US authorities after the man was killed. It is/was possible to live in the US and not be American, same as it's possible to be born in the US and raised in Canada.

There will be quite a few more when we get to RCAF killed on RAF squadrons. ... r-charles/
