Will send more another time.

Sgt. George Bub, December 22, 1943

Sergeant Bub was with the Electrical Section. Well at least that was my assumption.

He’s also on this picture with Flight Sergeant Leonard Weston, Warrant Officer Norm Cheevers and Flight Sergeant McKenzie.

Sergeant Bub is on the right in the first row.

This might be trivial unless you are related to Sergeant Bub and have no pictures of him or for that matter you are related to Warrant Officer Norm Cheevers and Flight Sergeant McKenzie and have no pictures also.

Now you have.

Was your father, grandfather, uncle, granduncle, or someone you know was with Electrical Section, 127 Wing around Christmas time in 1943?

Well chances are that he is on this picture.

This picture is probably not precious unless your father, grandfather, uncle, granduncle, or someone you know was with Electrical Section, 127 Wing around Christmas time in 1943.

If you find someone you know, please write a comment and I will get in touch.
