Mike CASSIDY, Businessman And Publisher 1923-2005
In 1944, he survived the destruction of his Halifax bomber over wartime Holland, Sandra MARTIN writes. Now, 61 years later, his remains will cross the Atlantic to join his long-dead crewmates in their Dutch graves
Saturday, April 9, 2005, Page S9
He was a small-time entrepreneur, a newspaperman and the devoted father of 10 children, yet it was the two years that Mike CASSIDY spent overseas fighting the Germans that had the greatest influence on his life. He was a tail gunner, a famously endangered species during the air battles of the Second World War, but he survived to become a prisoner of war. For the rest of his life he lamented the deaths of his crew members, going so far as to receive special permission to be buried next to their graves in a small village in Holland.
Bryan Michael CASSIDY was born in Ottawa in 1923, the only son and middle child of Charles and Marjorie CASSIDY. In the Depression, the family moved to Britannia Bay, then a summer cottage area on the Ottawa River and now a suburb of Ottawa. It was an ideal place for a boy to grow up, sailing in summer and skiing in winter. His younger sister, Patricia (Pat) SEED, remembers Bryan, as he was always called at home, asking for fashion advice before he went out and then knocking on her bedroom door to fill her in on all the details after he came home.
His father served overseas with the Canadian army at Ypres and Vimy Ridge during the First World War, and enlisted once again in the Second World War, which may help to explain his son's eagerness to sign up as well. Initially, he was rejected by the air force because he only had high school graduation and not senior matriculation. He applied instead to the army and was going to join the tank corps when the air force relaxed its requirements.
He joined up in February, 1943, was sent to training camp in Mont Joli, Quebec, and shipped overseas seven months later. Mike CASSIDY yearned to be a pilot, but volunteered to be a tail gunner because he feared the war would be over before he joined the fighting if he waited to be called up as a pilot.
He was assigned to the 420 Snowy Owl Royal Canadian Air Force Squadron based in Yorkshire, England. The squadron was equipped with the Handley Page Halifax heavy bomber. Similar in design to the famous Lancaster, the smaller Halifax was the aircraft in which Canadian aircrew flew 70 per cent of their wartime operations. In all, about 4,000 were built, the most powerful being the durable Halifax III night bomber.
After a series of training flights, Mr. CASSIDY started flying over German-occupied territory in April, 1944. On his third mission, his Halifax III completed its run over Karlsrube, Germany, early on the morning of April 25, and was heading home when the nose of the plane was sheared off after colliding with another Canadian bomber.
In vain, pilot Doug WATTERSON tried to steer the damaged bomber back to Britain. German Luftwaffe planes spotted the Halifax and started firing, knocking out two of the plane's engines. Later, Mr. CASSIDY, remembered fearing the worst and thinking, "It's going to be strange to be dead."
The pilot gave the order to bail out as the plane reared and tumbled toward the ground. At first, Mr. CASSIDY had trouble locating his parachute, which had become stuck in the ceiling of the plane, but finally he got it on. He dived out head first. Moments after he pulled the rip cord, the plane exploded and then crashed into the ground near the small Dutch village of Zuilichem. He and Ray TANNER, the upper gunner, survived, but the rest of the crew died, either in the mid-air explosion or from the impact when the plane hit the ground.
Tail gunners had an appalling survival rate because they were obvious and exposed targets in their Plexiglas spheres set into the belly of the bombers. Randall Jarrell wrote a short eloquent poem, The Death of the Ball Turret Gunner, about the horrific fate that awaited so many of them.
From my mother's sleep I fell into the State,
And I hunched in its belly till my wet fur froze.
Six miles from earth, loosed from its dream of life,
I woke to black flak and the nightmare fighters.
When I died they washed me out of the turret with a hose.
Mr. CASSIDY's sister Pat was 16 when the delivery boy peddled up to her parents' house carrying the ominous telegram saying Bryan was missing in action. "We only had a summer Catholic church in Britannia," she said, "and I took the streetcar into Ottawa to go to St. George's Church to pray that he would be all right, and the church was locked."
Both Mr. CASSIDY and Mr. TANNER eluded the Germans for about three days by surviving on chocolate bars and on water from the dikes. They were captured crossing one of the bridges over the River Waal. Mr. CASSIDY refused to give any information other than name, rank and serial number, according to his widow Jana CASSIDY. At first mistaken for spies, the two men were eventually interned in the first of several PoW camps in Germany, Poland and East Prussia before being liberated in 1945 after Germany surrendered.
"It was the biggest day of my life," Mrs. SEED said of waiting at the train station in Ottawa for her brother to disembark after his demobilization. "He made such a fuss that the newspaper people came over and asked if I was his girlfriend."
After the war, Mr. CASSIDY attended Carleton University and began his civilian life as a proof-reader at The Ottawa Citizen. He was an old-style, hard-drinking newspaperman, who had a successful run as a financial reporter for Dun and Bradstreet, before venturing into restaurant franchising and automation in Toronto, including San Francesco Sandwiches, the Longhorn Restaurant and vending machines.
In the 1960s, he operated a business in Montreal called C.F. Industries and Sparkomatic, selling electrode sparkplugs, but the political climate in Quebec worried him, and in the early 1970s he moved back to Toronto, where he launched The Press Journal with a partner. After its collapse, he started the quarterly magazine Press Review, a digest of news, awards and articles about journalism in Canada. He kept it going for more than 25 years, continuing to work as publisher after his diagnosis with prostate cancer last year.
His friend Ken BARRATT, who has known him since the early 1970s, remembers hearing about the hardships Mr. CASSIDY endured as a prisoner of war. With the Russians advancing from the east, the Germans forced the PoWs to walk as much as 60 kilometres a day. A big issue was finding enough food to eat.
Although they were a generation apart in age, the two men got along so well that Mr. CASSIDY sent him a fragment from a piece of his downed airplane, which local resident Peter Stoel had recovered from the bank of the River Waal. The salvaged parts of the plane were given to Mr. CASSIDY when he returned to Holland in 1995 to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the end of the war.
He married several times, twice to the same woman. "He kept making mistakes," his sister Pat said. "I was close enough to him to voice my opinion, but it was his life."
He met his last wife, Jana, about seven years ago. They were married about three years ago and she worked with him on Press Review until the end. "She took very good care of him while he was ill," Mrs. SEED said.
Mrs. CASSIDY is planning to fly to Holland the first week of May, with as many of the family as can make it, to bury her husband's ashes in the village of Zuilichem in a tomb next to the graves of the rest of the downed crew. "He always felt that he should have died with them," Mrs. CASSIDY said.
In an interview in The Toronto Sun in 1999, Mr. CASSIDY talked about his trips back to Holland, his guilt at having survived when his crewmates died, and his wish to be buried next to them. "When I first went back, in 1985, I had the feeling this is where I should have been," he told journalist Joe Warmington. "We lived together, ate together and we became closer than our own relatives."
The graves of the five crew who were killed in the crash have been maintained by the villagers. Every year, on May 5, they gather to remember the sacrifices these young Canadians made for their freedom. This time, on the 60th anniversary of the liberation of Holland, Mr. CASSIDY will finally rejoin his flight crew.
Mr. CASSIDY's widow is planning to continue publishing Press Review. The next issue, which is due out some time in June, will be a tribute to her husband.
Michael Bryan CASSIDY was born in Ottawa on August 13, 1923. He died of prostate cancer at St. Michael's Hospital in Toronto on March 17, 2005. He was 81. He is survived by his wife, Jana, 10 children from previous marriages, his sister Patricia and many grandchildren.

Frank LACE, Soldier And Investment Expert: 1911-2005
Artillery officer who reached the rank of acting brigadier at 33 was decorated for providing Canadian infantrymen in the Netherlands with devastating fire support
By Buzz BOURDON, Special to The Globe and Mail, Wednesday, June 22, 2005, Page S9
Ottawa -- Commanding artillery in battle, whether a battery of four guns or a regiment boasting dozens of guns, takes an enormous amount of professional knowledge plus the ability to calculate complex fire plans under extreme pressure. A lot of luck comes in handy, too. By all accounts, Frank LACE of Toronto displayed all those qualities during the Second World War, building a reputation as one of the most experienced and decorated officers in the Royal Regiment of Canadian Artillery.
Mr. LACE received his first important decoration on June 8, 1944, just two days after D-Day, when he was made an Officer of the Order of the British Empire. In October of 1945, he was mentioned in dispatches for "gallant and distinguished services in the field" before receiving the Distinguished Service Order for his leadership on the battlefields of northwest Europe, where he showed "at all times great devotion to duty without regard to himself, visiting forward observation posts or making use of small aircraft to get the first-hand picture of enemy dispositions and strong points."
On top of that, he achieved the rank of acting brigadier in late 1944 when only 33 and commanded two artillery regiments.
During the battle of Savojaards Plaat, fought during the Scheldt Estuary campaign in the Netherlands in October of 1944, Mr. LACE displayed tactical innovation as the commanding officer of 13 Canadian Field Regiment, Royal Canadian Artillery. He was directly responsible for the co-ordination and control of the artillery support required by the three brigades of 3 Canadian Infantry Division.
Although Operation Switchback initially called for the division to turn back to Dunkirk after stopping at Watou, the Germans blocked the approach to the strategically important port of Antwerp through the West Scheldt, so a change in plan was required.
Because of stiff resistance, Canadian infantrymen were ordered across the Plaat, a muddy bay opening off the West Scheldt, to extend their bridgehead, so artillery could follow.
"The ground was ideal for defence, being flat, almost at sea level, and intersected by countless dikes and drainage ditches," wrote regimental historian Lieutenant W. BARRETT.
Then Mr. LACE had an idea. Why not fire at the Germans from behind, even though it meant shooting toward advancing Canadians? The tactic left the enemy without the protection of the dikes and demoralized their defence.
Mr. LACE's contribution earned him the Distinguished Service Order. "In spite of extreme difficulties and transportation, LACE, by his tireless effort, although without sleep for several days at a time, succeeded in preparing and executing the complex fire plan and ensuring that the absolute maximum support was given to the infantry throughout that difficult week," the citation read.
Week after week, the soft-spoken Mr. LACE lived under tremendous emotional and physical strain. The constant pressure never let up, since he was directly responsible for the lives of his gunners, and for providing the infantry with desperately needed firepower.
Mr. LACE, after matriculating at Upper Canada College, graduated from the Royal Military College of Canada in 1932, during an era when it was pretty much a finishing school for the upper classes. During the Depression, he worked in Toronto as an investment salesman and soldiered part-time with 7 (Toronto) Regiment, Royal Canadian Artillery, of the Non-Permanent Active Militia.
Two days after Canada declared war, Mr. LACE married his sweetheart, Barbara CALDWELL, before shipping out to Britain in January of 1940. A few months later, he was a major. Mr. LACE later commanded 15 Field Regiment, Royal Canadian Artillery, before becoming a staff officer at 1st Canadian Army headquarters.
Late in the war, Mr. LACE was given command of Royal Canadian Artillery for the 2nd Canadian Infantry Division. During the assault into Germany, he was responsible for organizing fire support for a series of tough operations in February and March of 1945.
"The success of these operations was in no small measure due to the fire support provided by units commanded by this officer," said his citation.
After the war, Mr. LACE returned to the investment business, finishing as chairman of Matthews and Co. Ltd. from 1972 to 1975.
His other great passion was golf, said his son, Roger.
"He treated the investment business as a military campaign replete with strategies and skirmishes. He took the same approach to golf, which he studied and practised intensively, rain or shine. His relentless persistence resulted in a hole-in-one in his 91st year, all the more remarkable as he was legally blind."
Francis Dwyer LACE was born on November 20, 1911, in Qu'Appelle, Saskatchewan. He died on April 29, 2005, in Toronto. He was 93. He leaves his wife, Barbara, son Roger and daughter Cathy. He was predeceased by his sister Marion.
