In January 2000, the Metro Toronto Branch of The Aircrew Association had 283 members. Their wartime experiences are of lasting historical value; well-suited to recording and distribution by means of the World Wide Web.
In every theatre of war - Europe and the Atlantic, North Africa and the Mediterranean, South - East Asia and the Pacific - these airmen were engaged in operations that played a major part in the Allies' eventual victory. They flew in skies thick with anti-aircraft fire and patrolled by enemy fighters.
The stories tell what airmen did, individually and together during six years of the past century, in a struggle for freedom from the tyranny of Japanese and Nazi dictatorships.
It is to celebrate the record of these men and of their many friends who failed to return from operations, that we wear a poppy on Rememberance Day, November 11th.
They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old;
Webmaster- John Cowie
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them. Laurence Binyon
