Allan Todd’s son and I scanned all of his father’s pictures at 600 dpi settings so everything is BIG.

When you click on each image a new window will open up.

Every caption is important.

Those pictures that had no captions I asked Allan Todd about them.

I brought my Olympus VN-5200 PC digital voice recorder along just in case.

This picture was taken at Belleville.

The recruits had received their flying suits.

  1. Wow! Don’t you wish every historic group photo had the identifications marked on the back? I have so many family photos from the early 20th Century with people I know are relatives, but can’t do more than guess as to which relative they might be. This is especially true of the uncles since they all look a lot alike and many of them I never met or didn’t know as young men.
