Canadian Jewish Officer Receives U.S. Legion of Merit; Consul Presents Decoration

Squadron Leader Gerald Bronfman, of the Royal Canadian Air Force, was presented with the United States Legion of Merit today, for “outstanding services from June, 1943 to August, 1945 while assigned to the Royal Canadian Air Force Division of the Canadian Joint Staff, Washington, D.C.”

The presentation was made by North Winship, United States Consul-General, at his office here. The 34-year old airman, who joined the R.C.A.F. as an air craftsman in 1940, was commissioned in 1942 and held several appointments prior to going to Washington. He retired from the air force last October.
