Footnote: Claude Francis Mahaney was born on April 8, 1902 and signed his Attestation Paper on July 17, 1940 in Windsor, Nova Scotia, listing his trade as Retailer. He was a member of the 5th L.A.A. Regt, R.C.A., spending five and half years in the Canadian Army before he was discharged from service on January 23, 1946. He was awarded the Memorial Cross upon his death, August 17, 1956, at the age of 54. The Canadian Pension Commission ruled that his death, due to Cardiovascular Renal Disease, was related to his military service during World War II. As he was single, the Cross was forwarded to his mother, Laura Mahaney.
