MANY FOUND A FINAL RESTING PLACE  IN THE  MILITARY  CEMETERY IN CHOLOY, FRANCE.  SOME ARE STILL LISTED IN THE ROLLS OF " THE MISSING."

ON JUNE 19TH 1998, AS PART OF THE  SPAADS 1998 REUNION, A VERY SPECIAL CEREMONY TOOK PLACE AT THE RCAF MEMORIAL MUSEUM IN TRENTON, ONTARIO - THE DEDICATION OF A  MEMORIAL IN THEIR HONOUR.

FIERCE, FIERY WARRIORS FOUGHT UPON THE CLOUDS, IN RANKS AND SQUADRONS   
      LET THEIR REMEMBRANCE BE AS LASTING AS THE LAND THEY
HONOURED.
