DISPLAY NO. 22:
MANNING DEPOT ISSUES TO AIRMEN
Display case number 22 is to the right of number 21 and shows the items that the fledgling airman were issued at Manning Depot. Some of the items are uniforms, the housewife, as they were called, that includes the paraphernalia that was used to polish boots, buttons and all those things you didn’t like to do. The shaving kit you were issued even came complete with instructions.  The kit bag was your sole suitcase for the duration of your service in the Air Force.

 PHOTO DISPLAYS
The next display is a flip chart of photographs.  We have thousands of photographs.  When people provide photographs to us, we copy them and send the originals back if requested.  This display also contains some examples of Canadian War “propaganda”, showing some examples of the “Don’t Gossips” posters that were seen all over the country during the war.  There are also some examples of War Era money from various countries overseas.
