There were fifty-four men listed in STAR’s original Book Of Remembrance. Here are six more that should be included. All were buried in Canada and three died after “VE” Day. I suspect that they might have died of illness or injury serious enough for them to have returned from overseas or never have deployed. Any further information will be appreciated.
