Jack Calder at War: A Mother's WWII Scrapbook

Submitted by Spirit of the Hills member Patricia Calder

Jack Calder at War.

The University of Windsor collaborated with me in producing a website of my grandmother’s WWII Scrapbook containing 100 authentic documents which tell the story of my Uncle Jack, a navigator with RCAF/RAF.

He parachuted into Republican Ireland (Eire) in 1941, was captured by the Guards and thrown into the Curragh prison where he remained for 20 months. He escaped under a cloak of secrecy and began retraining when his plane crashed into a mountain in Northern England. Luckily he was rescued by a nurse who hiked 10 miles to the smoking crash site. Then he spent 8 months in hospital, enduring many surgeries to his leg and face. Finally he returned to service and was elevated to Pathfinders where he flew Mosquitoes until he was shot down in July 1944.

Spirit of the Hills is dedicated to promoting ALL creative art forms and traditions in Northumberland County, including the performing and visual arts, media, design and the literary arts.
