F/O Maurice Dier Zimmerman - Hometown

Post by georgetanksherman » Wed Apr 22, 2020 9:30 am

Greetings, wondering if I could get the home town for F/O Maurice Dier Zimmerman, J/27879, Died July 28, 1944, Wellington MF186, with RAF No. 38 Squadron.

RCAF Association has him from Cleveland, Ohio, U.S.A.
CVWM has him from Toronto, Ontario, Canada
CWGC- does not show anything
Find-A-Grave says Unknown

Appreciate any help clarifying this

Cheers !

Follow up George......his records indicate he was born in Canada, and was a Canadian Citizen. His father was a US citizen, but was a “naturalized Canadian” (hence dual citizenship).......his Mother was born in Canada.......It turns out that his “next of kin” listed is his Aunt....who live in Cleveland, Ontario
