Friendly Bomb this

Flt. Lt. J. Johnson, D.F.C., of Omemee, Ont., packs a bomb canister with magazines, “smokes” and candy, to be delivered via bomber to a lighthouse keeper on a lonely island in the Bay of Fundy. The officers’ mess of an RCAF station has “adopted” the light keeper as “the object of their affections,” and they see to it that he is kept well supplied with comforts. Flt. Lt. Johnson is a former member of the City of Edmonton Intruder Squadron and has four enemy aircraft destroyed to his credit.
