Pennfield Ridge Air Station - RCAF Station

Pennfield Ridge Air Station
Remembering Those Who Served
RCAF Station (May 20, 1944-October 1, 1945)
~Operational Training Squadron (July 1, 1944-August 19, 1945)~
~Transport Conversion Squadron (July 1, 1944-August 31, 1945)~

When No.34 Operational Training Unit disbanded 19 May 1944 it was taken over by the RCAF on the 20th of May 1944 under the command of W/C W.W.S. Ross. The Station consisted of an Operational Training Squadron with F/L Van Elslande as Squadron Commander, and a Transport Conversion Squadron with F/L L.B. Stevenson as Unit Commander. A smaller training unit in the form of the Eastern Air Command School of Survival was organized in May of 1945 under command of F/L G. Durrell. This school gave an extensive course in survival measures for those heading to the far East.

by Sgt. Joshua Helterbran

The soldier stood and faced God,
Which must always come to pass,
He hoped his shoes were shining,
Just as brightly as his brass.

"Step forward now, you soldier,
How shall I deal with you?
Have you always turned the other cheek?
To My Church have you been true?"

The soldier squared his shoulders and
said, "No, Lord, I guess I ain't,
Because those of us who carry guns,
Can't always be a saint.

I've had to work most Sundays,
And at times my talk was tough,
And sometimes I've been violent,
Because the world is awfully rough.

But, I never took a penny
That wasn't mine to keep...
Though I worked a lot of overtime
When the bills got just too steep,

And I never passed a cry for help,
Though at times I shook with fear,
And sometimes, God forgive me,
I've wept unmanly tears.

I know I don't deserve a place
Among the people here,
They never wanted me around,
Except to calm their fears.

If you've a place for me here, Lord,
It needn't be so grand,
I never expected or had too much,
But if you don't, I'll understand."

There was a silence all around the throne,
Where the saints had often trod,
As the soldier waited quietly,
For the judgment of his God.

"Step forward now, you soldier,
You've borne your burdens well,
Walk peacefully on Heaven's streets,
You've done your time in Hell."

To all that serve.

TRANSCRIBER'S NOTES: Those servicemen appearing above with just surnames and/or partial first names have been acquired from a variety of different sources. Therefore individual ranks currently listed, in most cases, may not reflect the rank they held upon discharge. Also , while some surnames & ranks appear to be the one in the same person there is a preponderance of evidence to suggest otherwise.
