- Twin Brothers did everything together by Scot Ferguson
From the time they were born in the Galt Hospital on July 25, 1923, Robert and Andrew Mosser were inseparable.They played six-man rugby at the Preston High School and were ends on the team which won The W.O.S.S.A. championship. They joined the Boy Scouts in 1935, and in 1940 were both elevated to the rank of King's Scouts. Robert was a Cub leader and Andrew an Assistant Scoutmaster. They were founding members of the Preston Scout House' Bugle Band and both sang in the choir of the Preston United Church. They not only looked alike, they acted the same. Even their best friends had a difficult time telling them apart. Andrew and Robert were sworn in at the Toronto depot of the R.C.A.F. They had planned to go to university in the fall, but made the unanimous decision to join the R.C.A.F.On March 20th, 1943 the Globe and Mail reported "In the first ceremony of its kind ever held in Canada, Robert and Andrew Mosser of Preston were awarded navigators' wings at a 'twin' presentation." The brothers were together until the end. They were both Killed in Action on April 22, 1943. They were 19 years old.
