     This has been in my friend's collection for as long as I remember, and I always wanted to buy it off him. He is starting to downsize and finally decided to sell it. It's a standard civilian suitcase from the 40s, but was painted with a pair of RCAF pilot wings and the name and hometown of Frank Crepeau. I haven't found out much about him besides his date of birth and being a Canadian-American.

You may want to post this on the WAF site in the British Commonwealth section. There are a few RCAF folks who look in there. Nice item by the way.

Look at the main section of the subsection and you will see a pinned thread about research at the Canadian Archives. His service record should be available. I don't think he was KIA.
