Temujin,

So that raises a question :-) Is there a Sgt. P. Vickers ? Was he assigned to RCAF No. 127 (F) Squadron, and if not ... Where ? And is he from the U.S. ?

Cheers

George
A very good question George………I’ll have to see if I can find anything??

Re: Sgt P. Vickers, RCAF No 127 (F) Squadron

Hmmm. The site I found (and I’m NOT saying it is correct) says the pilot was Bochman…….I’ll see if I can find the Operations Logs for this Squadron….so far I haven’t been able to find them…..but I’ll try and double check those.

Cheers George, and I’m fine thank you and back home now

Re: Canadian Soldiers in Horbury, Wakefield, West Yorkshire

I had to post this picture, it was in the CBC news yesterday……..as you can see, the photo was taken in 2017……so this is just a few years ago and the RCMP Recruits are carrying the Lee Enfield No 4 rifles………I wonder if they borrowed them from the Military (who kept a stock for use by the Canadian Ran...
