Tribute to Airmen in Mass Funeral Service
BY KAY MACREADY

Mass funeral services with full military honors were held in the drill hall at Estevan airport Wednesday afternoon for the 20 of 21 RCAF personnel who met their deaths in the crash of their Dakota transport plane at the airport Sunday morning just as other parts of the world were holding thanksgiving services in commemorating victory in the Battle of Britain. These airmen, many of whom wore decorations for valor, were killed in the line of duty just as the others who had given their lives in the defence of Britain. All Canada felt the loss in this second greatest air tragedy in Canadian aviation history, and Estevan, in particular, showed its feeling of sorrow by turning out in mass to mourn with those relatives who were able to be present.
