    Another quick update regarding the nomination of a WW11 RCASC veteran to attend the 75th anniversary of the Dieppe Raid in France from August 16 to 21. I just got off the phone with Paul Lesser in Kingston Ontario and he also is interested in attending; so I submitted his name to Veterans Affairs Canada to represent the RCASC at this event as well. Thank you Paul.

    Just a quick update regarding the nomination of a WW11 RCASC veteran to attend the 75th anniversary of the Dieppe Raid in France from August 16 to 21. I spoke with Jack Stringer in Barrie Ontario and he said he was interested; so I submitted his name to Veterans Affairs Canada to represent the RCASC at this event. Thank you Jack.

    Today I received a letter from Tom Lynch which describes his medical condition. He has had several radiation treatments so far which have been helpful. He is mobile and seems to be in good spirits.

    • Hi Tom …. Glad to hear things are more to the positive side with Tom Lynch. We wish him and family all the best. wonna

    I have received a request for a WW11 member of the RCASC (in relatively good health) to take part in an official Government of Canada delegation for the 75th anniversary of The Dieppe Raid on August 16 to 21, 2017 to attend remembrance ceremonies and events at a number of sites in Northern France. If anyone would like to Nominate someone, or if you qualify and wish to attend, please contact me soonest as our nomination must be submitted by June 16, 2017; All expenses will be covered by Veterans affairs. Also anyone wishing a copy of this request from Veterans Affairs can also contact me and I’ll forward you the e-mail. Nil Sine Labore
