Canadianfallenheroes.com is a charity designed to commemorate Canada’s war dead. Several times a year the organization produces new plaques memorializing Saskatchewan RCAF members killed in war or peace-time operations.
These plaques are given free to us to display. We always make a “Thank you!” donation.
The plaques contain basic biographical information and manner of death. About 50% of RCAF casualties were caused by accidents, weather issues, crew errors, or mechanical failures. Statistically, Training Command was as dangerous as flying Operations against the enemy.
The photographs on the plaques are supplied by families.
You will note that in several cases geographical features in Saskatchewan are named in honor of the war dead.
