there is anyone on the Net that remembers the years 1949-51 at
Calder I would be pleased to hear from them. I have lived in NS
for the last 20 yrs and enjoy a pretty good lifestyle with winters
down south and summers here playing golf on a Championship Course.
I was stationed with 726 Comm Sqn Hfx when retirement after 37
years arrived. We live in the southern part of the province in
a mostly retirement area. Many Ex military and RCMP in the area.
Much effort is put into keeping the story of RC Sigs alive and
it is appreciated by those of us who do not live in the central
area. All are to be commended for the effort that it must take
to complete a Project of this magnitude. I wish you the very best
Bright. (Ret'd CWO)
