Gerald McDougall, DFC

Inspiration from a hero

When WWII broke out, my grandfather, Gerald McDougall, joined the RCAF and flew Spitfires in Italy, Normandy (D-Day), and throughout France and Germany for the length of the European war. He escaped many close calls and fought honourably and bravely and was awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross for his contribution. It is in the memory of my grandfather and the aircraft he loved to fly that we named our roastery, Spitfire Coffee Roasters.
