My uncle enlisted in the RCAF at the age of 18. He trained as a bomber pilot and by early 1943 he was flying missions over Germany until his death on March 14, 1943. This is the story of his life and death.

Andy such a fantastic tribute to your Uncle Donald. He was imortalzed before amongst his Family and friends but your effort in putting together his life in print through some very loving research has further enshrined his memory in the annals of Canadian history as one of those who gave his life for the rights and freedoms that we should always cherish and we now have in Canada. May Donald Plaunt’s memory continue to live on. Beautiful Andy!! Norman

Thanks Norm for your appreciative comments. It was an honour to do this as a recognition of his sacrifice and to make sure he would not be forgotten. Andy
