McCubbin Lake

In December 2017, the Ontario Geographic Names Board (at the request of Marcel Lesaar) agreed to name a lake in memory of FC McCubbin who served and lost his life with the squadron in 1943 .

Marcel has since established that a number of natural features in Canada have been named after squadron personnel.

Thanks must go to Marcel for his continuing efforts to ensure that airmen who lost their lives in his local area in Germany are forever remembered


MESSAGE BOARD

Looking forward to working with you all to build up the history of No. 35 Squadron during 2018
