Omemee couple hear son broadcast from Holland

Omemee, February 19 (PNS)—L.A.C. Wilson Davis Ellis, R.C.A.F., son of Mr. and Mrs. Wilson Ellis, of Omemee, was heard in a broadcast over C.F.R.B. on Thursday evening, Feb. 15th. The recording was made in Holland where LAC Ellis is serving with the R.C.A.F.

In the broadcasted interview, the airman told of a recent two-inch snowfall in Holland, and said that everyone on the station, pilots and ground crew alike, were busy clearing off the runways.

LAC Ellis enlisted in Toronto, in August 1940, as a mechanic and spent most of his time in Canada at Aylmer, Ontario. He arrived in England in July, 1942, and one day after D-Day on June 7, 1944 he drove one of the first trucks which landed in France.
