Ex Cadets and more in the news…
“In responding to the SSAV and OAG reports, RMC is being asked to demonstrate its value to the CAF. In conversation with Maj (ret.) Maureen O’Halloran we have learned that Air Commodore Birchall spoke with the Cadets on or around the occasion of receiving his 5th clasp to the CD.
Maj O’Halloran was a Cadet squadron commander at the time (95-96) and her memory of the occasion is vivid, particularly because Air Commodore Birchall credited his “rook year” with preparing him to survive the Japanese POW camps.
The event was filmed and we are looking for a copy from which we could prepare a transcript.
If anyone has a copy of this film, or knows where one might be borrowed for a short time, we would really appreciate hearing from you. Please leave a ‘comment’ below with details”
