Celebration of military legacy important A 70th anniversary visit by the 419 City of Kamloops/Moose Squadron proved a perfect opportunity to acknowledge the city's military history, Mayor okaly sunglasses Peter Milobar said Sunday. "It just kind of rounds out that whole oakley cyber monday military piece for the general public," said Milobar, oakley sunglasses parts who attended weekend events involving the 419. The squadron arrived in Kamloops from Cold Lake, Alta., on Friday to attend a rededication ceremony of a plaque honouring wartime hero John (Moose) Fulton at Kamloops Airport. For years the plaque hung just inside front entrance to City Hall. Alex Sim, a war veteran and avid promoter of military aviation history, encouraged the City to move it to the airport terminal. Milobar and councillors Pat Wallace and Nancy Bepple attended the Saturday morning event, which took place with the squadron's Hawk fighter jets parked on the tarmac. A public viewing of the jets was held after the ceremony, giving people an opportunity to see the aircraft up close. Milobar said the event proved popular with children. The trio also attended a combined anniversary dinner at the Interior Savings Centre marking the 75th anniversary of Kamloops Airport, the 70th for the 419, and 25th oakley juliet anniversary of the 886 Overlander Wing Airforce Association of Canada. Wallace said the dinner, which was catered by Bistro 326, was fantastic. "They're our adopted squadron," she said the 419. "It's a really important relationship for us and it's really important or them. We're all good friends." Kamloops has a proud military history with the ANAVets, Royal Canadian Legion and Rocky Mountain Rangers reserve unit. Milobar said visits from the 419 keep that history in the spotlight.
At age 29, Fulton was the wing commander of one of the most decorated squadrons of the Second World War, the 419 Bomber squad. He was shot down over the English Channel while returning from an air raid in Germany and died. In 1943, Kamloops honoured the young man's memory by naming its airport Fulton Field and officially adopting the 419 Squadron so there would forever be a link to the community.
