Flying Officer Elmer Aaron was from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He enlisted in the RCAF in Montreal in March 1942 and received his commission as a flying officer in October 1943 (in England). Flying Officer Aaron had completed 14 missions and had been forced to bail out of his ships twice before his last flight. He was participating in a raid on Tours in France and was about fifteen miles from his objective when his squadron was caught in a concentration of anti-aircraft fire. Four planes were seen to burst into flames, and it was later announced that nine craft of this squadron had failed to return. (Canadian Jews in World War II)
