MacKay, Gerald Peabody

Pilot Officer, Royal Canadian Air Force

Service no. J/15208
Born October 24, 1918
Died August 24, 1942  

Son of Dr. Donald Russell MacKay and Alice Maude MacKay; husband of Edith Joyce MacKay, of Upwell, Cambridgeshire.

Born in Sweetsburg on October 24, 1918, he went to Stanstead Wesleyan College. He is hoping for a B. Sc. and seems to have taken an active interest in tennis, golf, football and hockey when at Stanstead. Art and scientific research are his main interests, and a research chemist his future aim in life. The Glee Club, hockey and dramatics can doubtless count on him.
