The kid I met

Just a kid

Allan Douglas Todd

The kid I met is now 92.

I met him twice.

One time in a hit a run visit, and the second time with all the time in the world.

The first time I had a sick cat to attend to so I had to leave earlier than I wanted. Allan Todd wanted to show me more family pictures, but I had to go.

When his son wrote me later he was leaving to get back home, I jumped on the occasion to pay his father another visit.

Glad I did because I scanned with his son all of his father’s pictures during his training days with the BCATP.

Not many, but never been published on the Internet.

Allan Todd was trained  at No. 1 A.O.S. Malton.

It’s all in there in his logbook!

  1. This is awesome history from a participants perspective. Our vets were brave young kids with a commitment to a better life for all molded by a childhood during the Great Depression. James Todd
