Royal Canadian Air Force – # 408 “Goose” Squadron – Served 3 years
As a member of the Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF), Gordon was a member of the 408 “Goose” Squadron. He was a Leading Air Craftsman (LAC) and completed his training in Brantford, Ontario.
Deployed to Linton-on-Ouse in England, Gordon served for 3 years, returning home in 1945. During his years of service, he met and married a British woman. And although he fondly remembers the life-long friends he made, he also remembers developing an intense dislike of Brussels sprouts, pea soup and mutton.
