Remembrance Day 2009


When my dad found out he was being posted overseas in two weeks, he married my mom. This happened in the same way for many couples of that time.

He was a pilot and flew Lancaster and Halifax Bomber on many missions. Dad has told us many tales of his time in the RCAF Squadron 429. At age 90, dressed in his airforce jacket deccprated with his wings and medals, I am sure he will be thinking of the many and varied experiences he had during the war years tomorrow on Remembrance Day.

























His flight crew. He is bottom left.



Once again, thanks for fighting Dad. You are one brave hero of mine.
He wrote the following:


Remembrance Day


Crippled, bent, alone he stays
upon a bench.
No more he plays with children there
upon the square.
It hurts too much for him to bend
to let the small ones condescend
to hear the story
of his glory.
Many years ago they said
as he lay still upon a bed
"You can bet
We won’t forget.
"Have we forgotten then so soon
the ones who lived that afternoon
the shelling stopped
and war was not?
Remembering those who died in trench,
forget not him upon the bench.
When passing by give him a break
and stop, and smile and gently shake
his withered hand,
He’ll understand.
Doug Williams
