CFB ROCKCLIFFE IN OTTAWA, ONTARIO
     The former  Rockcliffe military base is sacred ground, in my opinion. The Royal Canadian Air Force  participated in many World War 11 battles, including Normandy, Dieppe and the Battle of the Atlantic. At one time, CFB Rockcliffe was going to be the site of a Canadian National Military Cemetery.
     Victoria Cross winner W.A. (Billy) Bishop and Charles Lindbergh spent time at RCAF Rockcliffe. World War 1 Fighter Pilot Billy Barker was fatally injured, when his Fairchild airplane crashed at the base.
