Red Deer’s Pat Sisk, front, joins fellow veterans John Melbourne, centre, the Air Force Association of Canada president, and Robert Roe in saluting during the rededication of the British Commonwealth Air Training Plan cenotaph in the Red Deer Cemetery Saturday. A new Royal Canadian Air Force ensign was also raised by the 703 (Central Alberta) Airforce Association of Canada. The event helped commemorate the field of honour where 22 veterans of the plan, which trained air force pilots and navigators from Canada, England, New Zealand and Australia killed during and after the Second World War while training at the former Penhold air base, are buried.
