Military Monday: Life During World War II

During the Second World War, 211 airmen training under the British Commonwealth Air Training Plan enjoyed hospitality from an I. O. D. E. sponsored program in Grimsby, Ontario. That’s just one aspect of the way in which locals helped the war effort, as described in this November 2020 video by Dorothy Turcotte and Ev Page of The Grimsby Historical Society.

Do you know of any similar local archival resources naming BCATP airmen?

BTW, resources at the GHS website include a link to copies of the Grimsby Independent from 1885-1949 available through OurOntario at
