    Bittersweet to see Tom Spruston mentioned twice this month in Goldie Oldies. Was my squad boss and Pistol Team Chairman in ‘74. Sadly he was lost in the Air Canada DC-9 fire accident in Cincinnati (Jun 1983). RIP Tom. Pat Ellis 10102

    Yes, Tom Spruston was a special person, and somebody that we all respected for his ability to engage others, even us rooks from the Class of ’76. It was terribly sad to learn of his loss in 1983, and to learn afterwards that he had lost his life in assisting others in evacuating the aircraft. Such a tragedy! A Testimony to his goodness as a person, and as one who led by example.
    I was unaware of Major Spruston’s fame and prowess as a Rep Boxer, but it sounds that he more than held his own. It’s an excellent article written by J.D.P. Wall! We must have had some excellent Boxers back then. :-) My only observation is that the subscript in red underneath the photo indicates that it’s from 1960, but the article itself reads February 1962.
