Our reader, Alan Soderstrom is very interested in the scores of Station Magazines we've featured.

Alan has been searching for BCATP Station Magazines relevant to the time and stations for when his uncle Clarence Soderstrom trained in BCATP from September 1942 through September 1943

His uncle Clarence lived in Winnipeg area when enlisted and went on to train at: Brandon, March 1943 ~  Winnipeg Repair Depot, May 1943  #23 P.A.E.D. ~ U of Toronto, May 43, M.P.O. 303, Trenton including #2 AGGTS. ~ #3 B&G Macdonald Manitoba, August 43 and Finally 1Y Halifax October 1943.

He requests that anyone who may have zines from those stations to share them with him.


Remembering Flying Officer Walter Czuboka RCAF
I am summarizing important people and events in my life. ~ Michael Czuboka
My late brother Flying Officer Walter Czuboka completed 52 missions hunting German Nazi submarines during WWII. He trained in the British Commonwealth Air Training Plan, but not in Rivers or Brandon, his home towns. He learned the Morse Code and how to operate radar. He married British Airwoman Mabel Dewin, and they had three children: Frank, Susan and Shirley, all of whom lived in Rivers, Manitoba, and then in British Columbia in the Okanagan Valley and on Vancouver Island.

Walter worked as a department store manager during his civilian years. He spoke only Ukrainian until he started school in Grade 1. He was very talented academically and was skipped two grades in school by his teachers. He completed Grade 12 with honours. In those days fewer people finished high school because of the Great Depression in the economy. He stood 10th in his RCAF training class of 200 and was immediately given a commission.

Born: June 13th 1917 Brandon, Manitoba
Died March 9th 2007, Victoria, BC
Service Number: 290444
Age at death 89
