Greetings from RCAF 111 (F) Squadron

Hi

I am sending this greeting out to everyone who has responded to the invitation to participate in the website:

www.RCAF111fSquadron.com

By now you know that the guys of 111 Squadron were involved in something quite extraordinary: they defended our Country’s western boundaries. The duty was very difficult and the mission was probably hard for many to understand.  History has not been able to help us understand what  our  enemy  was up to in the Western Pacific. They had probably over-played their hand.  But Canada didn’t know that for sure at the time.  We reacted… successfully.

Eventually, Canadians were able to put our whole attention to the threat that was growing in Central Europe.  And, eventually, that was handled very well, too.

This note is to say thank you.  You have contributed to something that will mark how our countrymen have risen to the cause. The guys of 111 Squadron were heroes.  And you are related to or know about them. Congratulations!  They were probably just ordinary guys that felt the call and did what was asked of them.  In retrospect, that is what is  inspirational.

Thank you for helping this site to salute them.

I hope that 2015 was a productive and fulfilling time for you.  May 2016 bring good things to you and your family.

Merry Christmas!

Bill Eull
