Written two years ago when Mark White was just thinking of writing about his dad George White. We have come a long way since then.
A new collaborator and a new category.
This blog pays homage to all those who served with RCAF No. 403 Squadron during WWII.
This blog is all about sharing.
Greg has shared his grandfather photo album and his precious logbook.
Mark wants to share what is seldom mentioned in WWII…
This is what George Stewart said about erks when I asked… Click here.
So next time, on this blog, we will talk about Mark’s dad who was an erk with RCAF No 403 Squadron.
I just can’t wait.
Click on the image to zoom in. Mark’s father should be there.

I just wrote this post on Lest We Forget.
This was Mark White’s third contribution to this blog. It was published back in 2012.
Mark White forgot this picture in his article.
The captions are the original captions wrote by his father.
Here are the other ones he sent me before.
Does anyone know who’s in front, his hand over the right side mirror?
Good old Robbie
What everyone was waiting for.

Maybe you have missed that part of yesterday’s post.
Here’s the story (As Written by Hand):
Working late again. Don came back again and brought me a good 8 mm German Mauser rifle. This looks like a good one to try and get back home. Our Spitfires are a big attraction for the Army. We got another visit from the Legion Canteen – afternoon tea this time.
Mark has copied what his father wrote in his journal. Not only this time, but everything he has shared with us since 2012. One more reason to repost what Mark wrote so John can easily find Mark’s articles about his father and the real story of erks with 403 Squadron.
I will be signing off for today. Be sure to drop in on Sunday morning for Wings Abroad and on next Tuesday for another of Mark’s article…
Unless something comes up that I have to scramble and share immediately.
