CFB ROCKCLIFFE IN OTTAWA, ONTARIOThe 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.
My father , RCAF pilot George Roth Shaw, in the year 1942. (1918-2012.)
