  • Group Photo– This photo was posted by Melanie Elliott, who is the daughter of Frances Evelyn Bent (nee Faulkenham) on the day of her marriage to Elroy Fenwick Bent, Pilot Officer, RCAF.  Within hours of their marriage, Elroy was informed there was a troop ship in Halifax where he was to report to in the process of his sailing to England to serve as a Pilot.
     Shortly after Elroy's departure, Frances joined the RCAF and was sent to Rockcliffe, Ottawa for basic training.  During that period she received a message to the effect that her husband, Elroy had been killed in an air crash in Khartoum, Sudan.
