Project Dedication

Respectfully dedicated to all officers and ranks who volunteered for active service in any part of the world and made their contribution to the winning of the war through devoted service at No. 15 SFTS in the British Commonwealth Air Training Plan during 1941 – 1945 at Claresholm, Alberta, Canada.

Some did not live to fulfil their purpose.
These brave souls stayed in Claresholm
The bonds of the Empire lie within these men and women
As they sleep throughout eternity.

The bonds of love, the bonds of sacrifice,
The lives of these men and women were given our country,
For family and friends, as surely as those
That died overseas.
