Nous retrouvons ces deux aviateurs dans la collection de Réal St-Amour. Ici on reconnaît le visage de Ryan, dernière rangée à gauche. Un visage qui en dit long selon moi sur ce que cet aviateur pensait de cette guerre.

Au début, j’avais enregistré cette photo sous le nom two airmen…, mais à force de regarder de plus près j’ai reconnu le navigateur Kallal dont j’avais parlé sur le blogue.

À force de regarder la centaine de photos de Réal St-Amour, je découvre de plus en plus de nouveaux et d’anciens visages comme le Squadron Leader Palma Lionel Dupuis

Lanctôt et Odell, pourtant blessé dans l’attaque, sont rentrés sains et saufs. Patry et Fournier sont décédés dans le crash. Mon grand-père a sauté avant-dernier. Patry, son meilleur ami, aurait refusé de le suivre: « c’est pas vrai qu’ils vont m’avoir », aurait-il dit…

The bomber shot down on March 8, 1945 – Halifax III MZ-815 coded KW-C

Dans les souvenirs de guerre de Ken West…

Son premier contact avec la réalité de la guerre.

The first night there we were put in a hut until we got our own hut for our crew. I said ‘Hello’ to another F.E. who was off to do his first night op. When I woke next morning his bed space had been cleared of all his possessions. He had not come back. Only his shoes were left as they were half‑way between our beds. All aircrew wore shoes and these now became a spare pair for me. A few days later our air‑crew and another were Guard of Honour at the grave‑side of a crew who had crashed after being ‘shot‑up’.

Je viens tout juste de terminer la lecture du document de Pierre Gauthier. Un document fascinant à lire par la réalité avec laquelle il décrit la vie des aviateurs de guerre de l’escadrille Alouette.

KW-Y Halifax

Un passage m’a particulièrement frappé à la dernière page.

Pierre Gauthier y parlait d’un jeune navigateur. Ça aurait pu être de lui dont aurait parlé un autre navigateur dans ses souvenirs de guerre livrés dans un document à Réal St-Amour que l’on surnommait affectueusement « Le Saint ».
