Lila Mogelon rode across Canada in 1945 on a motorcycle, as her wartime job of monitoring Japanese and German sub's comms was finished and she needed a vacation!

Lila Brownberg Mogelon held the distinction of being one of only 18 "girl wireless operators" in Canada. She served in Ottawa and Victoria where she monitored the communications of German Submarines in the Gulf of St Lawrence and then the Japanese subs off the coast of Vancouver Island. In 1945 she traveled across Canada by motorcycle.
