All of these documents are available on Ancestry.com.........if you need all of them I can either finish posting them here, or you can go on AncestryLiamLondon wrote: ↑Tue Mar 16, 2021 7:31 amDear Temujin
I cannot thank you enough for the information and the documents you have provided. Are you able to provide a link to the full resource of the passenger information lists and the other documents you sourced, it would help me tremendously.
I was aware that Ralph seemed to commute back to New York from Canada quite frequently, however I wasn't aware how usual this was. Were service people able to 'pay' for extended leave/furlough to visit family if they had the funds to do so?
AND, YES, it would have been VERY UNUSUAL to allow a Canadian Military member to fly back and forth (almost every weekend) during the was. AND, NO, you CANNOT “pay” for extended leave in the Canadian Forces......and during the war he would have need “permission” for EVERY time he left the base and left Canada. It “may” have been his VIP status (who he was married to) could have helped.......or he may have done it on his own and not reported it.......Hopefully his Canadian Records may give some “clues” of why he was allowed to travel so much.....and it will all give you all the Canadian Units he was stationed at.
