Royal Air Force (RAF) Collection

  • RC0891
  • Coleção
  • 1943

There are two letters written by Arthur Medland. The first is written to his Uncle, William P. White, the second is written to Douglas S. White, who seems to be William's son based on the content of the letters. Medland's letter to Douglas mentions the Tunisian Campaign. Medland has given the day and month, but not the date. His letter to Douglas is mostly likely written in 1943, given the time of the Tunisian Campaign and the active service of the HMCS Owen Sound, but it could be later. It is presumed that the letter to William is the same year, but again could be later.

The third letter was written by Jim [Shanock?] (1495306), an Aircraftman with the RAF, based at Sharjah in what is now Dubai. He was serving as part of the Persian and Iraq Force when he wrote to a Canadian, [Ian or Tom] Lancaster (JX391082), on board the HMCS Moose Jaw in July 1943. A couple of words have been excised from the letter by the censor.
