The sad news was conveyed to Mrs. Grace Maeder on Wednesday afternoon last, by an official notification from Ottawa, of the death in action overseas of her son, Flying Officer Paul Maeder, one of the most popular of the younger lads of the town previous to his enlistment. Twenty years of age, Flying Officer Maeder was born in Grimsby, the only son of the late R.A. Maeder and Mrs. Maeder. Following graduation from the Grimsby High School, he entered the employ of the local branch, Canadian Back of Commerce, where his father had formerly been the accountant. He enlisted in the R.C.A.F. in March 1943; trained at Lethbridge, Vancouver and Edmonton, and received his Navigator's Wing and commission as pilot officer at no. 7 Air Observers' School, Portage La Prairie, in March of this year. He went overseas in April, and was promoted to the rank of Flying Officer in September. He is survived by his mother, who resides on Nelles Blvd., and a sister, Miss Jane Maeder of Toronto.
