John Laurie has sent us this photograph taken in the Maintenance Engineering Drawing office, Dorval Base March 1976 .

tmb mtce engr drawing ofcLeft to right: Frank Smrk with the sun glasses, John Laurie centre and our Supervisor, John Helstrom.

Frank left AC shortly after 1976, moved to the Sydney area in Australia and opened a small motor repair shop.

I, (myself) John Laurie, joined AC IFS Crew Scheduling where I retired in 2009 after 35 years and I am residing on Lake Louisa, north of Montreal.

John Helstrom retirement date is unknown; he moved to Ontario Green Valley area took up gardening but has since passed away.

Thanks John. 

(Note: The NetLetter questioned the name 'Smrk' as there was no vowel and John supplied this answer –

Smrk is correct. Frank told me his grandfather changed the name during the war to be able to escape the Nazis they were from Austria. That was always a frequent question for Frank. His sister Herda Coppola worked in the Power Plant).
