Our Zone Commander, Ron Davidson recently presented a shadow box to Mayor Roger Chandler of Arcadia California. The presentation was made to honor the service of Roger’s father, Stanley Roy Chandler, who served his 4 year RCAF enlistment as a Coxswain operating a rescue boat on Vancouver Island during WWII in the Western Air Command Marine Squadron, Marine Branch of the RCAF. The shadow box contains a Canadian Flag of the era, a pin, two squadron patches and Stanley’s service book. Many stories and memories were shared among those who attended this ceremony. Mayor Roger Chandler’s wish is that the shadow box be donated to an appropriate museum on Vancouver Island.
