From the Perth Courier, August 14, 2014.
“Decorated World War II veteran Patrick J. McManus was put to rest in Elmwood Cemetery here in Perth on Tuesday, Aug. 5, witnessed by a small gathering of close family and Perth Legion members. He had passed away on June 13, in Gibsons, BC. The graveside service for the former Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF) bomber pilot was conducted by Fr. Brian McNally of St. John's Roman Catholic Parish. McManus was awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross (DFC) for actions taken as the captain of a Halifax bomber during an attack on German shipping off the Norwegian coast in October, 1944. His aircraft was shot down, and both McManus and his co-pilot were captured by the Germans. His experiences about the attack and time spent as a German prisoner of war are detailed in a book he wrote titled ‘Her Last Trip’.”
Patrick J. McManus is honoured in our museum.
