Multiple (Commemorative Features [Canada])

McCubbin Lake

Whilst researching airmen that lost their lives in his local area in Germany, Marcel Lesaar discovered that Canadian natural features (such as lakes, islands, peninsulas and bays) have been named after World War II casualties.

Having completed the relevant application forms he applied for a feature in Ontario to be named after FC McCubbin, who served and lost his life with the squadron in 1943 [Halifax HR876]

In December 2017, the Ontario Geographic Names Board advised him that a lake has now been named McCubbin Lake.

Subsequent research by Marcel has established that features have also been named after the following squadron personnel:
