From Sister Irene Chapmen (nee Weber)
There is a bay named after Wilf on Lac la Plonge in northern Saskatchewan.
His name appears in the Book of Remembrance from 11 am November 30th until 11 am December 1st of every year.
We had a pump organ which he played by ear well enough to be asked to play. He bought a cheap guitar from the weekly newspaper and taught himself to play. I also remembered the day he learned to whistle properly walking home from school.
When I wrote him that the Weyburn airport, on which brother Herb worked, was going to bring in a bunch of Brits as its first bunch to train, he wrote back to say a uniform is the "lowest common denominator", so don’t be too impressed and I wasn’t.
A tribute laid at the name of my Uncle Wilfred at the Runnymede memorial. Thank you Roger Smith for doing this every year. It means a lot to us.
