FROM THE EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR
Chris Colton
Volunteers are the essential commodity that make our museum
viable. Without them our doors
could not open and bring to the
public’s attention the amazing 100
year story of Canada’s Air Force. I
thought that in this issue I would
give everyone a sense of just what
type of responsibilities they have
on a daily basis.
The Concise Oxford dictionary
describes a volunteer as “a person
who spontaneously undertakes tasks”.
Here at the museum our volunteer task list continues to grow as
the museum matures. And now that the construction is finally
completed after 11 years and $7 million, there will be new and
greater tasks and challenges ahead.
Already in just the last few weeks our tour guides have
noticed an increased requirement to spend more time in the
vast newly refreshed exhibit hall. With aircraft and displays now
populating the mezzanine area their tasks now include a wider
area to assist our visitors. And as more and more exhibits are
introduced they will probably find themselves spending much
more time patrolling the main floor area. The interface between
the tour guide and the visitor is an extremely important aspect
of what this museum delivers. It is this important face to face
contact that continues to garner a wealth of positive comments
every year.
In the same manner our Gift Shop volunteers will soon be
faced with an increasing task list as their facility doubles in
size as part of our next expansion project. While no firm date
has been established for this renewal, they too will be asked
to remain positive as they adapt to these changes. Their initial
hello and welcome remains a key ingredient to a successful
visitor experience.
The tremendous success of our AD ASTRA programme
with 11,000 stones in the ground is a task handled by our
“stone masons” every Friday morning. Through their volunteer
efforts, this highly successful fundraising programme and the
tasks that go along with each stone placement are the envy of
many of our fellow museums. Without their high level of dedication, the programme would never have achieved the level of
success that it has accomplished in just over 17 years.
page 2
When we look around the Air Park and the many tasks that
are handled by our volunteers, who daily cut the grass, trim
the bushes, change the lights or tie down the aircraft, we realize
how wide and varied their task list is. Yet this small group of
museum volunteers can be justifiable proud of their efforts. It
is this team effort that shows to the visiting public how much
we take pride in this facility.
If you have had the opportunity to be in the museum
recently when there has been a visit from a local school, watch
the students expressions as they are entertained and educated
by our small but growing group of volunteers involved in our
education programme. The tasks associated with keeping a 10
year old mind attracted to the subject matter is indeed a challenge.
Through the dedicated efforts of our volunteer “professors”
each student comes away with a much better understanding
of each subject and even the teachers have commented on the
breadth of knowledge of the subject matter that is provided.
This programme, where volunteers provide the vast majority of
hours required has put the museum on the map. A continuous
flow of positive assessments received to date from all the schools
participating in the programme will ensure a bright future and
a higher task level for the future.
And finally our restoration team of highly skilled and
dedicated volunteers continue to work their magic on every
aircraft restoration project that they have been given. I am
always amazed at the level and skill that is evident from these
volunteers on a daily basis. As another part of the museum
team their work has drawn praise and respect from museums
around the world. The “WOW” factor is always in evidence.
While I have tried to put into words the remarkable commitment to their tasks of our team of volunteers it is their daily
efforts in every aspect of this museum operation that matter.
Regardless of the fact that the phrase has been used before, I
can justifiable state with out hesitation that we could not keep
our doors open without their volunteer effort.
I invite everyone who is looking to join a volunteer organization to consider our museum. You will join a team of highly
motivated and dedicated volunteers who make this museum
the success it enjoys today and will enjoy in the future.

What a difference a year makes! I have been here for 13 months
now and I can say with certainty that time does, indeed, fly!
There have been so many changes that have happened in the
last year that I have yet to experience the “normal” museum
and I am pretty sure it will not happen in 2013.
If you have not been in the Main Exhibition Hall lately you
will not believe your eyes, and as Al Jolson said, “You ain’t seen
nothing yet!” (My apologies to English teachers and Editors
everywhere.)
Now that we have opened up the Main Exhibition Hall
the work has started on moving exhibits from one side to the
other. Soon there will be a new “Great Escape Exhibit” and
“Royal Air Force Escaping Society” exhibit. We will tell the
remarkable story of the Great Escape from STALAG Luft III,
and the lesser known stories of evaders from the Pat O’Leary,
Comet, Marie-Clare, and other lines. Thanks to a generous
donation from the Royal Air Force Escaping Society, we will
make sure their stories live on at the National Air Force
Museum of Canada.
New to the Museum will be a large exhibit to the many people
that made up the British Commonwealth Air Training Plan.
It was called “The Aerodrome of Democracy” and credited
by Winston Churchill as, “the decisive factor” in winning the
war. Few medals were awarded to the instructors and none
we given the status of, “war hero” or “flying ace”, but without
the BCATP instructors the Commonwealth would have had
200,000 fewer pilots!
You will also notice that four of our air craft have been
moved up to the second floor. The crew in the restoration
department has gone above and beyond in lifting, moving,
placing, and moving again…. many more things then they
ever though they would, and for that I cannot say thank you
enough! You guys really are miracle workers.
On the second floor level we also have a new simulator up
and running. It really isn’t new, but we didn’t have much room
for it before on the main floor. This simulator is a standard “off
the shelf ” video game, but placed in a specially made simulator.
If you have ever wanted to fly a Halifax bomber here is your

Moving the aircraft from the ground floor to the mezzanine level took,
ingenuity, talent, and plenty of patience.
chance. It has been fun to experiment with and it has definitely
confirmed my status of ground pounder since I have managed
to crash ever time I have flown.
The coming year will see new hands on exhibits, new
multi-media, and more for families to do when they are here.
There are many other exhibits that are being worked on right
now and our hopes are to touch on every trade and every
experience in the Air Force. We are trying to live up to the
National in our name.

NEW ACQUISITIONS
Artefacts from Kandahar
In September 2012, the curatorial staff accepted a very unique acoustic guitar into the NAFMC artefact collection. One glance at
the dirt and signatures covering the case and anyone can tell that this guitar has a special story to tell.
A Note for the Soul
Cheryl MacLeod, Maple Leaf Magazine
The note on the case read, “Last man out please bring it home,”
– and that’s exactly what Master Corporal Scott Lawrence did as
he stowed the Epiphone AJ-200s acoustic guitar in his pack-up
heading back to Canada.
“It was great for morale and a really good guitar,” says MCpl
Lawrence, a medical technician from 17 Field Ambulance, Winnipeg, who is currently attached- posted to 26 Field Artillery in
Brandon, Man. “It sounded great and played great; that’s what
made it so nice, because it played so well. It was sweet!”
The guitar that ended up being more than a just piece of kit
was a morale-builder, soothing many a soul at both Kandahar
Airfield and Camp Nathan Smith in Afghanistan. But where did
the note come from?
Sergeant (Retired) Graeme Hume, a Reservist from the Ontario
Regiment of the Royal Canadian Armoured Corps, was responsible for donating the instrument and sending it to the troops. As
an amateur musician, he knew what comfort music could offer.
“They [personnel from his unit] were having a rough time over
there. And the last thing you can bring in your kit is a guitar. So
I thought I’d send one, because it’s good for the soul,” Sgt Hume
says.
So he went to Kevin Simpson, manager of the Long and McQuade music store in Oshawa, Ont., and asked if he would donate an acoustic guitar for the Afghanistan cause. Mr. Simpson
did, gladly.
Several months after sending the guitar, Sgt Hume received an email from soldiers in Afghanistan, thanking him for sending the
instrument. The one that stands out was from a young soldier
who, after a rough four days outside the wire, stumbled upon the
guitar back at camp.

2013.63.1 Guitar, Acoustic

visited Afghanistan to play for the troops.
b) The case is covered in signatures and afghan dust, a unique record
of its travels.

“The soldier said they were getting hammered for four days, and
were pulled back to resupply and rest, when he found the guitar,”
Sgt Hume says. “He wrote that, ‘the two nights we were there
[Camp Nathan Smith] we had a campfire and a little sing-along
– and this was exactly what we needed to recharge and re-motivate to get back out to the hell. That was stunning to me, and
proved that the guitar did more than I ever expected it to do.”
Also attached to the guitar was a note reading, “If you play it,
sign it,” but many of the soldiers didn’t have the heart to sign a
beautiful guitar, so they signed the case instead.
“I got moved from KAF to Camp Nathan Smith, so I took the
guitar with me and played it the whole time,” MCpl Lawrence
sys. “It became a hit among the other musicians in camp, so we
moved it around camp and everyone played it, then signed it.”
Another story Sgt Hume remembers is that of a soldier who lost
four of his mates in one quick flash. “They gave him 10 days off
to get his head back in the game. He asked to borrow the guitar
and, for 10 days, it was his constant companion, no matter
where he was or what he did. So, it’s a million-dollar guitar in
my opinion, when I hear about the lives it helped… just knowing
it touched these guys,” Sgt Hume says, “It did its job.”
MCpl Lawrence, who served in Afghanistan from October 2009
to April 2010, also came upon the guitar by accident while in the
music club with a friend.
“I was digging around in the instruments when I saw this case.
And it had a note on it, ‘Last man out please bring home,’ and
‘Sgt G.M. Hume’ written on the side, so I thought ‘this is interesting’, and I opened it up. And there was this beautiful guitar,”
MCpl Lawrence says with a lift in his voice. “I played around
with it; then, I signed the loan card and took it back to the shacks
with me.”

and Asst. Curator Hailey
Johnston.
Sgt Hume’s note, “Last man out please bring home.” is clearly visible on the side of the case.

Tim Hortons Coffee Cup
New to the collection is a small, truly Canadian artefact: a Tim Hortons coffee
cup from Kandahar Air Field (KAF) in Afghanistan. Instead of the familiar
brown of everyday Tim Hortons cups, this cup has a camouflage print and
was one of the four million cups sold at the Kandahar Tim Hortons outlet
from 2006 to 2011. The outlet opened on Canada Day in 2006, and served
approximately 30,000 Canadian Forces members and personnel from 37
other countries. Approximately three million donuts were also sold, and half
a million iced cappuccinos and bagels. Over 230 Canadians worked at the
Kandahar Tim Hortons, which was operated by the Canadian Forces Personnel
Support Agency (CFPSA). All proceeds benefitted military community and
family support programs.
This Tim Hortons outlet was the first to be opened at a deployed mission.
Having a taste of home available half a world away made a real impact on
many who were deployed. Imagine spending six months in the desert, but
being able to start your day with a fresh bagel & cream cheese or ending it
with an Iced Capp! Troops could even participate in the annual
“Roll Up the Rim To Win” contest. The museum’s cup
is from the 2007 contest, and the rim is intact.
Other artefacts recently added to our
collection from “The Sandbox” include some
CADPAT Arid pants, boots, photographs of
Operation ATHENA ROTOS 1 through 10,
and several signs, plaques and photographs
in use at KAF.
2013.10.1 Coffee Cup
A taste of home, half a world away. With
it’s camouflage pattern and “Kandahar
2007” details, this is definitely not your
standard Tim Hortons cup.
Update on Collections Storage
One of the ongoing challenges with the NAFMC collection is
ensuring that all artefacts are stored in such a way that they
will be preserved for future generations. Our collection is extremely diverse, with artefacts ranging in size from buttons to
aircraft and their components (there are a lot of props in storage!) and made from a whole host of materials. For example,
our wool uniforms have different preservation needs than our
photographs, and both of these have different challenges from
our silk parachutes and metal tools and equipment. Addressing
the individual needs of each artefact is an important but time
and resource consuming process.
Earlier this year with help from our high school co-op
student John Waltz, our extensive photograph album and
scrapbook collection received some much-needed TLC. As this
collection has grown, the space available to hold them has decreased. Over the years, several albums have been stacked and
page 6
others were placed on shelves too small to hold them, for lack
of available space. The albums were uncovered and exposed
to light and dust. Accession numbers were not clearly visible,
so the handling of these fragile items was increased. Some of
these albums date to the First World War, and have become
very brittle with age. Others that are newer were constructed
with poor-quality materials that degrade a little more with
each handling.
A total of 135 albums and scrapbooks were measured, then
carefully wrapped and placed in clearly labeled archival boxes.
A conservation materials grant from the Directorate of History
and Heritage made it possible to purchase these supplies. Due
to the limited space, some boxes are stacked, but the stress on
the individual albums has decreased. An updated inventory
and clearly labeled boxes make it possible to locate individual
albums without disturbing the rest.
www.airforcemuseum .ca
Also in our archival space are large-format Squadron
albums. These albums average about 30” x 25” in size, with
some as long as 40”. Like the smaller albums, the pages within
many of these giants are getting brittle with age. Previously,
a lot of these albums were stacked as space to hold objects of
this size is limited. Wrapping or boxing these albums is not
currently possible, but we were able to erect more shelving to
spread them out. The new shelving was covered with a layer
of dense foam, which acts to minimize damaging vibrations.
Here at 8 Wing, vibrations from aircraft movement are very
common! The albums were then covered with archival tissue,
clearly labeled with their numbers, and their shelf also labeled
with this information. These are small steps that go a long way
to improving preservation of these important items.
The oversized albums desperately needed to be spread out.
Shelves were covered with a layer of foam, then archival tissue.
Albums were placed onto the lined shelves ...
... and then covered with more tissue to keep dust off.

EDUCATION
The Ying-Yang Year
Gina Heinbockel-Bolik
Last fall, when I reflected back on my first few months in the
education portfolio, I was very excited about the interest we
had received in our programs at the end of the school year.
We also had a couple of summer camps from as far away as
Oshawa who selected our Museum for one of their day trips.
Much of that interest a came to a screeching halt when labour
relations between both the elementary and the secondary teachers
union and the provincial government began to break down.
We certainly had our concerns how the Museum’s renovations
would affect the willingness of educators to come. The portable
classroom in front of the Museum was one of those uncertainties
and so was the temporary loss of our HERC and Voodoo cockpits as well as our Cessna as teaching tools. In the end, all that
mattered little as museums all over the province felt the impact
of no field trips.
As with everything in life it was not all gloom and so there
were numerous exciting highlights throughout the year. The
first was a visit from an elementary school in Peterborough
back in October. This was the first time we had a school from
that area, representing a market we hope to break into more
in the future. It was also the first time I was approached about
our grade 5 program, Keeping History Alive, which up to then
had only existed on paper. To increase the amount of hands-on
activities with in that program, our Curator Kevin Windsor
jumped in with both hands and taught the kids how a museum
repairs paper documents and photos and why scotch tape
might be ok at home but not for archival preservation.
page 10
Around the same time, I received a phone call from a
teacher who wanted to visit the base and have a recruiter talk
to her grade 10 Civics and Careers class (a mandatory course
under the Ontario curriculum). Since that was not quite so
easy to arrange as she had thought, the Museum welcomed
the students instead and put together a program showcasing
different career options within the RCAF. Cpl Leslie Blair and
Cpl Lynn-Ann Saunders from 424 Squadron had to answer
numerous good questions about their specific jobs but also what
it was like to work in jobs often still seen as non-traditional
for women.
The most exciting school event however, was the inauguration
of the previously announced Tunnel to Freedom – The Great
Escape. Goodwin Learning Centre, a local private elementary
school, had contacted the Museum about a program to observe
Remembrance Day and the teachers were very excited about
this new program. As a special feature for the launch of a new
program of this kind, the Museum invited Hon. Col. Arthur
Sherwin (426 Sqn), himself a participant of the Great Escape,
to give a presentation. The students, ranging from about grade
4 – 8, had already learned about the Stalag Luft III activities
and the escape itself in preparation for their visit and listened
so attentively to every one of Hon. Col. Sherwin’s word. They
had so many questions and everyone wanted to have their
picture taken with the man who truly represents a living piece
of history.
www.airforcemuseum .ca
The program itself was similarly successful. The students
interpreted some of Les Kenyon’s drawings on display, then
worked on forging a document and covering up some buttons to
help make uniforms look less military and finally they played
the Museum designed board game “Tunnel to Freedom”. The
game’s objective naturally is to finish the tunnel and to secure
a spot in the exit order. Depending on the number you roll
with your dice you may encounter obstacles (based on actual
events) that may hinder your ability to help with the escape
activities or you may gain items that are useful to have after
you escaped from the camp. Once the tunnel is completed
students get to pull a number out of a bag and then learn the
name of the POW who had that number, and his fate; homerun, caught and returned or caught and executed.
In the days before the program launch, we had some doubts
how the kids would react to the idea of a board game at a time
when electronics have taken over. Likewise, the anticlimactic
nature of the game was also something we were not quite sure
about. As so often in the world of education, the kids surprised
us. They asked if they could get a copy of the game for their
school and many pointed to the game in their after visit letters
as their favourite part of the activities. They felt the excitement
of building the tunnel and then that void when finding out “their”
fate. While we cannot truly comprehend what it
must have felt like for the POWs back in 1944,
the game still gives a glimpse of that dichotomy
of feeling pure excitement and then total
devastation, and for some the mixed emotions
of having survived.
The relatively quite time over the winter months presented
an opportunity to create some other activities and to revise
our current slate of programs. One of these revisions was an
overhaul of our grade 1 program My Neighbour Jumps out of
Airplanes. This program is linked to the Social Sciences strand
of the Ontario curriculum as students look at the different
occupations people hold within our communities. With members
of CFB Trenton being well represented in the communities
around our Museum and amongst the visiting school children,
the program focuses on the work of a SAR Tech. The story book
that initially complemented the program had an interesting
narrative about life as a military family but it had no connection
to the RCAF and the main program idea. With no children’s
books available that fit, the simple answer was to write and
together with public relations design a book just for our
program titled, to nobody’s surprise, My Neighbour Jumps
out of Airplanes.
For the near future, the plan is to revise our grade 3 program
and to work on some interactive activities visitors of all ages
can try their hands on. In addition, the education department
is preparing a new advertising brochure that will replace the
rack cards printed at the start of the education programs.
Playing Tunnel to Freedom helps students gain
a better understanding of the effort and risks
involved in the Great Escape.

RESTORATION
The volunteers at the Restoration Workshop have been very
busy lately getting the Main Exhibit Hall back in shape and
moving several aircraft from the main floor to the mezzanine
level. In the workshop itself, we have taken out the overhead
crane assembly by the Avro Anson, which is no longer required, to make more room to work.
The restoration work on the Avro Anson continues, and
while a lot of the work on the Anson does not show, it is
steadily getting closer to completion.
The Lockheed Hudson is making much more visible progress as the Hudson nose section that we acquired from Chino,
California has now been fitted to the fuselage. The aft fuselage
section of the Lockheed Lodestar is the next item on the list
to be modified. The Lockheed Lodestar and the Hudson were
both based on the same aircraft design, and this section, which
in most respects is identical to the Hudson, will need to be
modified to lower the horizontal stabilizer attachment points
to the proper position for the Hudson.

A new year brings changes. As the new Chairperson of the
Foundation, I am faced with new challenges. As the past Chair,
Steve Gifford, noted in his last article in The Logbook, the
Foundation board operates with “a few committed and dedicated
trustees and their supportive friends and family.” But this small
group has a large task ahead of it and needs the help of people
like you who are reading this edition of The Logbook.
We have fund raising plans for this calendar year that include
the 10th Annual Golf Tournament to be held on 21 June 2013
at the Warkworth Golf Club, a gala banquet to be held in the
Museum on 5 Oct. 2013 and—a new event—our 1st Annual
Curling Bonspiel slated for 2 Nov. 2013 to be held at the Trenton
Curling Club. As busy as this seems, the money raised by these
traditional methods will no longer meet the museum’s financial
requirement. pIn past years the museum and the Foundation
have been supported by membership, donations inspired by
special projects (especially the HALIFAX), and some corporate
sponsorship. Support in all these areas has declined. The recent
construction used up the interest bearing funds that had been
providing a good portion of the annual operational budget. As
that money was spent, and well spent at that, we must make up
for the interest income that is now gone.
The Commander 8 WING has provided continued support
to the museum as the host Base. While the Wing will continue
to support the museum’s physical structure, substantial and ongoing financial support from the Foundation will be necessary to
allow daily operations, future improvements, new exhibits and
maintenance of current exhibits. Membership renewals will
help but we need to solicit substantial corporate and individual
support if we are to secure an adequate long term financial base.
page 14
As this Foundation supports the NATIONAL Air Force
Museum of Canada, we understand that the local base and
civilian community, which both have other worthwhile projects
and priorities, cannot be the sole basis for support.
Unfortunately, because there are many museums, Military
Family Resource Centres, and other similar groups at RCAF
bases across Canada all looking for funding for their individual
worthwhile organizations, the Commander of the Air Force has
declined our request that our museum be singled out for special
consideration. It is therefore left to the Foundation to reach
across Canada to the thousands of retired Air Force personnel,
RCAF and CF, as well as to current serving members. We also
need to assemble a new corporate support base. In my introduction I mentioned we need your help. So how can you help?
•
Renew your membership or become a member—it does
have benefits. Encourage others to do so.
•
Make a donation—tax receipts will be issued.
•
Promote the Foundation and the museum among your
friends and family.
•
Suggest corporate sponsors to the Foundation Trustees—
we do not know everyone!
•
Visit the museum and bring a friend. Attendance levels
indicate the perceived importance of the museum in
preserving Canadian history and to the local community
and therefore affect the funds that we can raise.
Finally, enjoy the summer of 2013. Make a visit to the museum
and support to the Foundation part of your summertime plans.
