In 1939, she was living with Percy Thomas Oscar Boult (1888-1953). (Louise was known as “Mrs. Boult” at this time, even though she and Percy were not yet married.)

John Henry Vickers

John Vickers was born in Vancouver about 1915. Sometime after his father died in 1917, John and his mother went to live in Birmingham, England.

John went to Solihull School in England. He joined the Royal Air Force about 1932.

In July 1939, in Hull, England, John married Peggy Jeffrey. She was the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Jeffrey, of Hull.

John went to France at the beginning of the Second World War. While serving as an observer on a British reconnaissance bomber over Germany, he was seriously wounded. He continued to navigate the bomber and he helped the pilot to land safely in French territory.

While John was in hospital for his wounds, he received the Medaile Militaire from the French government. He died on October 5, 1939, and he was buried in Choloy War Cemetery in Meurthe-et-Moselle, France.
