LINDSAY AIRMAN HAD EXCITING EXPERIENCES CHASING HUN SUBS

  Mrs. M. Davis, Elgin St. was profuse in her enthusiasm regarding the return of her airman son to town and home. "Words cannot express how I feel. He has been two years overseas and working hard and I am glad he is back for a furlough" said Mrs. Davis, regarding her son P. O. Bernard "Bun" Davis. "Bun" arrived in Canada on Thursday and reached home late Friday night.
  For sixteen months P.O. Davis was with the "Demon" Squadron, attached to coastal duty and engaged in bombing German convoys and supply ships. The squadron also was engaged in anti-sub searches and combats in the Bay of Biscay.
  P.O. Davis recalls participating in a sub attack and was lucky, as he remarked, to have a part in sending it to the bottom of the ocean.
  In October last the young airman married an English bride, who expects to come to Canada as soon as transportation can be secured.
  A sister of P. O. Davis is now attached to the CWAC stationed in Kingston.

Notes:
This card is part of a larger collection of World War II personnel clippings. The project began in 1944 at the Lindsay Library. The intent was to gather together as much information as possible on the military record and the service of people from the Town of Lindsay and the County of Victoria (now Kawartha Lakes) who served in the war. To that end, during the years 1944, 1945, and 1946, members of the public donated photographs and updated information about their loved ones. Both library staff and the public saved and donated newspaper clippings. Some of the files contain great amounts of detail, while others have just a name.

The clipping about Bernard Davidson as shown in the full image was erroneously attached to Bernard Davis' card.
