Message from Bill Stubbs:

I see various websites have been edited (including what was our western Canada one), but we continued to exist until this past year end! One of the first to adapt to reality we continued as a club NZ style to keep together more socially with wives and widows who helped keep us going successfully until now.

Funds supported a farewell Christmas event catered by a "Residence" with and eye on future prospects.

I, secretary for last 12 years, managed to enter our last casualty in the last issue of intercom, but owe the following recent one:

12593 S G Gardiner 217/ 357 Navigator N.Vancouver.

We have kept a memorial Board with names on which the local Legion has installed as an elaborate wall decoration in their memorial hall where we held our meetings and lunches.

Sincere thanks from the surviving fourteen airmen!

PS If anyone has news of John A Cruickshank VC of Aberdeen please would they advise Greater Vancouver, who have lost touch.
