Comment from Mark White about Russel Keith McAdams

People sometimes overlook the comments on this blog. This is why I am posting this one from Mark White who also writes posts on this blog about RCAF 403  Squadron.

Dave,

That’s an amazing wartime story about your dad and some nice research on your part.

The real heroes of the war never talked much about their experiences. I only heard my father talk about the war in detail and visiting the camp at Bergen-Belsen only once in my life. That was on the 50th Anniversary of D-Day. He gathered the whole family together and he talked about the war for about 4 hours. I thought the most amazing stories he told were during the liberation of Paris.

When I was young, he would sometimes get together with his war buddies. Nobody really understood what they were talking about. One minute they would be laughing their heads off and rolling around on the floor and the next minute they would be crying like babies.

Thanks again for sharing.

Cheers,

Mark White
