NORTH BATTLEFORD CEMETERY/RCAF

My great uncle was killed during a flying mission in December 1944. Some years ago my mother visited his grave, the first of his family from Australia to do so. When she got there there were fresh flowers on his grave, no other grave in the cemetery had flowers. He was 19 when killed but she thought there may have been a child born to him. This is just a guess on her part, but the flowers are a mystery. Can anyone help with suggestions. His details are below.

Name: CASSIDY, MAXWELL HAROLD
Nationality: Australian
Rank: Leading Aircraftman
Number: 431689
Service: RAAF
Unit: 13 Service Flg Trg School RCAF
Regiment: Royal Australian Air Force
Age: 19
Date of Death: 04/12/1944
Cause of Death: Accidental
Casualty Type: Commonwealth War Dead
Grave/Memorial Reference: Plan M. Block 11. Grave 2.
Cemetery: NORTH BATTLEFORD CEMETERY

Thanks, Janet

I see your great Uncle listed in our Sask. Remembers its War Dead book. There isn't any other info ,but it's possible he made good friends here that would honor his memory with flowers. You might try reposting, using his name on the heading. Many people don't open anything that they don't relate to.

My mother was engaged to Max when he was killed. There was no child. I was born in 1951 after my mother married my father in 1948. She is still living and would love to hear from you. Please email me if you see this post.

Hi, I sent 4 photos of Maxwell Cassidy's funeral. Please let me know if they were received. Also, I sent a message to Janet, who wanted info about his grave . . . but it is so old now that I'm not sure if she will check back. Is there any other way to contact this person? Also, who are you and what is your involvement? Thanks, Elinor
