Charness, Mark

Mark Charness was born in Montreal in 1923. He joined the RCAF in 1942, and soon was designated as a flight navigator. In 1944 he was transferred to the RAF, where he ended up as a member of the Pathfinders. He flew in a Lancaster, where he joined up with an Australian crew. When the war was over, he returned to Canada and started up his own business.

Mark was first interviewed for this project by his grand-daughter Katherine, when she was in Mr. Scott’s CHC2D class.  In 2012 he was interviewed again by Katherine, this time with Michael Lawee and Zach Brown.
