Group of Six from VWS March 28, 2010
This photo represents roughly half of the remaining personnel that served at Vancouver Wireless Station
during the 1950's through to the closure of VWS in July 1971. Perhaps there are some of you from the
"far east" that would be interested in seeing what some of your counterparts from the "Left Coast" look like.
The age range here is 70 to 85 years. The photo was taken in Ladner March 26, 2010.
L to R -
Jim Troyanek, Don Hayward, George Sheard, Tony King, Arnie Watton, Bill Rogers.

Every 2nd Tuesday of each month a group of "old timers" from Vancouver Wireless Station get together for coffee and a bull session at the Boundary Bay Airport Cafe beginning approximately 0900 hrs. If anyone is/will be in the area at the time of these get togethers and would like to attend, please pass the info to me and I will ensure that Bill Rogers gets it. Spouses/partners of course are most welcome. If you don't feel like sending the info, just drop in and introduce yourselves, I know you will be made to feel at home!!

Click the image for an article on Alert and Inuvik which appeared in the Nov-Dec 1970 issue of the Sentinel.
The article features several recognizable people, such as Ted Defeo, Paul Charbonneau, "Mrs Joan Kelsey, wife of a Corporal Inuvik", and Orlene and Butch Whitelaw", read Whitlaw. There were a few typo's made in the article. For those of you who do not know,the Sentinel was a military magazine published by the Canadian Forces, that was eventually canned by the powers that be, due to "budget restraints". The magazine was much looked forward to every two months and read by virtually everyone in the Forces. Of course, something this popular could never be allowed to continue!!!
