In Memorium

I would like to take this opportunity to note the passing of two of SORM's founding members.  On December 5, 2014, Edna Simpson passed away.  Edna came to Canada as a war bride having met Doug while they both worked on radar, serving in the RAF. In later years, she became very involved in the War Brides organisation and could be seen at events singing, “Till we meet again” with fellow war brides.  More recently, Horace "Red" Macaulay passed away on April 8, 2015.  Red had a Distinguished Military Service during World War II as a pioneer in radar training and maintenance at Mt Allison University, NB and overseas with the RAF and 406 Squadron of the RCAF. Post-war service in the military included many technical assignments with NORAD radar systems and with NATO as the Wing Telecommunications Officer at Zweibrucken, West Germany.  Both Edna and Red contributed significantly to SORM's permanent collection through artefact donations, photographs, reference material, and interviews.  Their presence will be sorely missed.
