Message with the pictures
I am attaching 8 pages of photographs I have found.
The inscriptions on the pages are quite faint but they are
page 1 – class 84 7 A.O.S. Portage la Prairie
page 2 – Winnipeg
page 3 – 5 photos of Moncton and 1 of Montreal
page 4 – There is only one comment – Ski Run Montreal
page 5 – Banff, the Rockies and the Totem at Portage la Prairie
page 6 – Montreal, sleigh run
page 7 – Ski jump and the group are in Moncton
page 8 – The portrait was taken by BERT BRIDGMAN, 33 E F T S, CARON SASKATOON.
How I came up with all this?
Bert was with No 4 Squadron but I was interested in the picture as it was taken at the same spot that my father’s photo was taken. Many years ago we visited that hotel so he could look around. He did further training in No 33 EFTS in Canada, Heaton Park Manchester, Lords in London, but I have no dates. He died 23 years ago and because my mother died and we are clearing her house lots of photos crossing the Canadian Prairie to Medicine Hat, Moose Jaw etc are emerging, Including a Graduation Dinner of 83 Navigators in Winnipeg- undated but includes photos of 2 classes of RAF graduates. Any info welcome
