Sqn Ldr Don Laubman DFC*

Don Laubman was one of Canada’s most successful fighter pilots. After a period instructing trainee pilots he joined No. 412 (RCAF) Squadron based initially in England. The squadron moved to Normandy in June 1944 to support the Allied armies. In a three day period in September he was credited with shooting down eight German fighters; a feat that was never repeated. By the end of the war he had destroyed at least fourteen and shared in the destruction of a further two enemy aircraft. He was twice awarded the DFC. During the years that followed he flew Sabre and F.104 fighters, first as a squadron commander and then in command of the RCAF’s No. 3 Wing based in Germany. He later commanded all Canadian forces stationed in Europe. He died on June 20 aged 96.
