127 Wing Tips

RCAF Newsletter

Europe 1942/1945

By John Lemay

"Wing Tips" where a sort of an information newsletter put out by a couple of well-intentioned members of our unit who did their best to print just about anything that was "printable" and when there was enough stuff to fill a couple of sheets, the Gestetner machine would go into action.

So, when the war ended in early May 1945, almost unexpectedly, someone suggested that a souvenir issue would be appreciated. Good, let's find someone from each section who will write a summary or a story depicting the activities related to that section. The deadline for the submission of the material was sometime in July but unfortunately or fortunately our Wing was disbanded and ordered back to England ASAP. That was the end of THAT endeavour. However all was not lost. Lo and behold, almost 57 years later, the idea came back to life when I discovered some of that material in a briefcase in "the proverbial attic" and therefore it is now presented in this CD for the benefit of anyone who might know someone who belonged to the 127 Wing. It is my sincere hope that it will find its way to many former members. John (JB) Le May
