Remembrance Day Open House at the
Commonwealth Air Training Plan Museum
  Brandon Municipal Airport

On November 11, 1999, we held our annual open house.

Two one-hour slide presentations entitled “Freedom is not Free”
were presented by Stuart Johnson, a Museum volunteer from Winnipeg. 
The slides showed the horrors of war and cemeteries of the 
Armed Forces in England, France, Belgium, Holland and Germany 
and how well they are maintained.
The presentations paid tribute to those Canadians 
who gave us the freedom we enjoy today.

Both showings played to overflow crowds.

Everyone at CATP Museum wish to thank the 
WestMan area for their tremendous support
and for helping to make this event such a success.

Museum’s Mission: 
to commemorate the British Commonwealth Air Training Plan by
telling its story, preserving its artifacts, and 
paying tribute to the more than 18,000 R.C.A.F. personnel, 
who gave their lives during WWII.
