pilote Camille Bouchard

BEAUVAIS, F/O Joseph Lucien Rosaire (J37765) – Distinguished Flying Cross – No.425 Squadron – Award effective 5 July 1945 as per London Gazette dated 17 July 1945 and AFRO 1507/45 dated 28 September 1945. Home in Montreal; enlisted there 31 July 1942. Trained at No.5 ITS (graduated 17 April 1943) and No.4 AOS (graduated 29 October 1943). Award presented in Montreal, 25 November 1949.

Flying Officer Beauvais has frequently displayed exceptional skill as a navigator on sorties against major targets in enemy territory. On one mission in October 1944, early on the outward flight all the navigational equipment became unserviceable. Despite this Flying Officer Beauvais succeeded in guiding his pilot to the objective and safely back although adverse weather was encountered. On a number of his other sorties this officer’s aircraft has sustained damage from anti-aircraft fire and once was attacked by an enemy fighter. Whatever the hazards Flying Officer Beauvais has invariably displayed outstanding coolness and courage.
