Electrical Section, 127 Wing, Christmas, 1943

From Pierre Lagacé, the gentleman who works tirelessly to bring our ancestors home to us!

RCAF No. 403 Squadron

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.

    • I do indeed hope this joyful season brings happiness to my Fab Four of Cley. I can only wish for the impressive and educational posts I’ve enjoyed in the past to continue in 2017. Only the best for my friends across the pond, the sea and a canal or two (wherever you may be at any given time.] ho-ho-ho!!
      With love and admiration,

  13. This is a great idea to do. After reading this post, I went into my office where I have a WW2 photo to see if it labeled, and it is: Co. C First Platoon MDTS Lawson General Hospital Atlanta- January 1943. Now I need to find a place with more exposure to post the photo than my blog. Any suggestions?

    • I suppose Pinterest, but there are so many blogs under the tags WWII and WW2, Military History and Family History – that putting it on your own site and including these tags may put it out there just as well. What do you think?


  14. These wartime photos are indeed precious to anyone who knows a relative in them, or recognises a friend. They are also precious to all the rest of us, as cherished mementos of brave men who went out into the unknown to save the world from oppression at the time.
    Best wishes and seasonal greetings to you, and to all your readers and contributors.

    • Thank you, Pete. I feel that even though one doesn’t know the person(s) in question, we each have someone who was affected. May we always remember and help to make each Christmas closer to a peaceful
      Wishing you and yours the very best!!
