A Few More Interesting Bits & Pieces

It's been a while. I've spent the day scanning a few documents I have here as part of the "collection". In oder, they are Dad's Pilot's Log Book starting in 1938; his Private Pilot's Certificate and Licence and his ID Card.

The log book is from his training at the Ottawa Flying Club. His ID card is somewhat of a mystery to me - maybe someone can help me out. As far as I know, he transferred to the RCAF in December 1944. But the card says 22 July 1944. His first name is spelled incorrectly and his eyes were hazel.

Yesterday would have been Dad's 92nd birthday.


  1. Thanks for sharing/
    we had a family party today at the location of the former airfield in Ophoven. My uncles and father told their stories about the war and their adventures on the airfield. It made me think again about your father. I also had to tell the story of your visit, the exhibit etc...
    greets, Karel

  2. I was there with you in spirit!
