During your coversation with the author the comment was made that his uncle was an RCAF on an RAF station overseas and that he was not treated equally after returning home .My dad was also not treated equally as his counterparts who were on canadian stations overseas. Even in the amount of educational allowance that were afforded was not the same as a canadian on a canadian station .Theirs was almost unlimited where dads was only allowed 1 year.
