In regard to Netletter #1423 “Reader Submitted Photos” - CP Air Overseas Managers at Rendezvous Canada Convention in Vancouver - I received the following identifications from Allan Tremblay who is seated front left.. Unfortunately he did not mention the year. Later, Allan Tremblay informed me that the year was either 1981 or 1982.
Regards, Maureen Worrall

Re Netletter #1423 and photo I sent you - thought I had attached names of those I knew but perhaps I missed it - in any case the ones I remember are seated in front.

Really enjoyed this NetLetter. Read it start to finish and saw many names I knew and many more that I didn’t. Lots of interesting info in between. Loved the Smileys as I’ve lived through most of them! I was with Nordair for about 5 years before we became part of Canadian Airlines.
Just wold like to say that the Montreal Aviation Museum at Ste. Anne de Bellevue, just west of Montreal between Highways 20 and 40 is well worth a visit.
I’ve been there many times and, like most Canadian Aviation Museums, it is staffed with many airline enthusiasts. They have a nice Nordair corner with much memorabilia from that great little Airline.
Keep up the good work.
My name is Terry Ward, a Pionair through my wife Janice.
We are presently setting up at The Edenvale Aerodrome near Wasaga beach. If you view our website you can see some of our artifacts including our reproduction of a full scale Avro Arrow.
I have been with the museum since its inception in 1997. My main function was primarily in acquisitions and collections. One of our themes is the Airlines of Canada, mainly TCA and AC.
We have many uniforms, models, photographs, artifacts and dedications to some of the people ranging from maintenance employees to Claude Taylor. I would be interested in anything you would want to donate to our non-profit organization.

I was very interested in the article in Netletter #1424, about Canadian Pacific Airlines leasing a Bristol 170 Freighter.? I had never heard of it, and it is not shown in any listing of CPA fleet? So, it might have been a wet lease (crew and aircraft).
I went searching, and enclosed is a photo showing G-AGVC taken at Downsview (YZD), August 1946, while on North American tour from the Mike Ody collection.
