  1. I’m almost certain this distinguished gentleman was Dr. Frederick Banting. My family rescued his pilot, Mackey, and brought Dr. Banting’s remains to tiny outport Musgrave Harbour, in Newfoundland. My great uncles were out hunting when they learned of the accident and fashioned a sled from tree branches to convey both men back from “the bush.” A truly tragic accident and a tremendous loss to the medical community. Thanks for sharing.
