Lindsay boy killed in Oslo crash – had plans for a nuptial event

A picture of a former Lindsay boy killed in an aeroplane crash in Norway, in Saturday night’s Toronto Star was the first intimation many Lindsay friends had that William Reginald Fee’s name has been added to the honour roll, martyrs to World War No. 2.


The young airman was a grandson of the late William Fee, who died recently in Lindsay. The report says:


F.O. William Reginald Fee, 25, only son of Mr. and Mrs. Garnet W. Fee, Bathurst St., was killed December 18th when the aircraft of which he was a crew member crashed at Oslo Norway, his parents have been informed.


Among the 17 occupants of the plane, all of whom were killed, were three other Canadians, Flt.-Lieut. W.A. Young, Brussels, Ont., F.O. K.F. Study, Verdun, Que., and F.O. R.J.N.A. Dagenais, Montreal.


F.O. Fee was born in Trenton and received his education at Lindsay and Midland high-schools. Before enlisting in R.C.A.F. ground crew in 1941, he was manager of a shoe store in Port Hope.


He was with the ground crew at Gander Bay, Newfoundland, for six months and the remustered [sic] to air crew and took his training at St. Thomas before getting his wings as pilot and commission at Brantford July 1, 1943.


He expected to be home next March and was to marry then. Surviving besides his parents is a sister, Mrs. Lorraine Eames.
