New RCAF Exhibit at the Juno Beach Centre
Mike Bechthold, with the Laurier Centre for Military Strategic and Disarmament Studies, contacted me with news that he has been working at the lead historian on a new exhibit on the Royal Canadian Air Force for the Juno Beach Centre in Courselles-sur-Mer, Normandy. Titled "From Adversity to the Stars: The RCAF in World War II", the exhibit is scheduled to open on 1 July of this year and will depict Canada's air war through text, photographs, and artefacts. The material presented in the exhibit range from aircraft, parts of aircraft, German anti-aircraft guns, and various other items. Anyone wishing more information on the exhibit can contact Mike at his e-mail address above.
