Biographical history

Lucy Benevides, originally from Bermuda, served in the Royal Canadian Air Force during World War II. Once the Air Force was re-opened to women in 1951, she re-joined, eventually rising to the rank of captain. She was stationed at Metz, France in the 1950s. RCAF No. 1 Air Division was located there during the 1950s and 1960s in order the meet Canada's NATO air defence commitments in Europe.

Custodial history

Scope and content

The collection appears not to contain any materials relating to Benevides in World War II. There is a newspaper clipping containing a photograph of her and other Flight Officers in Metz; four group photographs with no date or location noted; an invitation to a base handover ceremony in 1967; a semaphore sheet with Benevides name written on the top; 3 desk signs. The remainder of the collection bears no obvious connection to Benevides. The majority of it is Air Force related however. It includes a photograph and programme for National Air Force Day in Rockcliffe in 1964; a photograph taken at the Officers’ Mess in Downsview in October 1943; photographs of air force personnel and airplanes including a jet; a Christmas card sent from the 3rd Wing, RCAF Station Zweibrücken; military sports day programs and crest, 1945; and other items. Not Air Force related: photograph of officers in the Elgin Regiment in Britain, 1943; photograph of four officers, one with his wife at a garden party in August 1942 (Major H. Duff. Lt. and Mrs. J. Lang, Lt. Col. Archibald).
