Thanks to Larry Milberry of CANAV Books for these wonderful photos of a special event in the history of “Little Norway.” In September 1976, the first commemoration of RNAF wartime air training in Canada was unveiled at Toronto’s waterfront. Canada’s Chief of Defence Staff, General Jacques Dextraze, faces towards the camera in the photo on the left. Member of the Norwegian Parliament, Per Hysing-Dahl, a veteran of Little Norway who flew with the RAF’s “Tempsford Taxis” during World War II, wears the dark suit in the photo to the right.
