Fred George Turner’s Photo Collection

Fred Turner earned his wings at No. 9 SFTS Summerside. His son sent me these exclusive photos to share with my readers.

Harvard P.E.I.

I wonder if his log book shows who pranged those Harvards.

These should be great photos to colourise on my spare time. I could not resist starting with this one…
