Lest we forget: Air gunner reflects on WWII service
from Cranbrook Daily Townsman
Though 70 years have passed since the end of the Second World War, the memories of that global conflict still remain with Canadian veterans who served. Lee Brown, a Cranbrook, B.C., resident who entered the military when he was underage six months shy of his 18th birthday, trained and served as an air gunner on a Lancaster bomber. Brown enlisted in 1943 and was shipped over to Europe early the following year, where he was part of a crew that did bombing missions on Nazi targets mainly in Germany and up the coast of Finland.
