“CANADIAN PATHFINDER – The Life of a Canadian Bomber Ace”
by Kenneth B. Cothliff

It has been over 75 years since the end of WW2 and the story of one of Canada’s greatest RCAF bomber pilots and leaders, REG LANE DSO DFC and Bar CMM CD, can now be told. Through this very unique book, exclusively offered in Canada by Halifax 57 Rescue, finally we can share the amazing story of Reginald John Lane who did 64 combat trips, with 2 full tours on Halifaxes!!

This most special book by UK author Ken Cothliff ( who lost his own father Bill in Halifax bomber combat with RCAF 425 Squadron) explains in great detail in 156 pages the entire brilliant career of Reg Lane in the RCAF and RAF, including the postwar RCAF.

An excellent read with great details of Reg’s 1942 to 1944 bomber combat (2 tours) when hardly any bomber crews were finishing 1 combat tour, the author is to be commended for his exhaustive research due in the main to the great cooperation of the Reg Lane family. regards BCMC and H57RC
