    My brother-in-law sent this to me. It is a story of one of the Dam Busters who took off and never came back on that fateful day 75 years ago.
    He is friends with the son of Pilot Officer L.J. Burpee.
    No doubt, there are countless stories, similar to this one, across Canada.

    Good lord. I grew up in the Glebe. My parents still live there. I had no idea.
