Introduction

In 1972, six years after I retired from the RCAF, I worked in the Department of Finance in Ottawa. I rode a bus to work and to keep occupied, I wrote about my 20-year stint in the RCAF. This is where this book comes from. Last February, I dug it out and sent it to my friend Howie Hunt, a professional cartoonist who served in the RCAF Central Band during the war. He encouraged me to get it published and volunteered to supply cartoons for it.

I owe thanks to my golfing buddy Neil McDonald who did a first edit, and to Mike McDade. Mike is mentioned in the book. He was happy to go through the text, make corrections, and suggest better wording. To him I am grateful. But most of all, I owe my thanks to my wife Jill, who stuck with me all these years, and who, throughout all my travels, kept our family together.

Although all the stories are true, I might have expanded some a bit, memory being what it is, along with human nature's bent to forget the bad and remember the good. This book is dedicated to musicians who served in RCAF bands, and to that wonderful thing that once existed, the Royal Canadian Air Force.
