Large Grouping to Sgt.Mjr M.R.(Reg)Birkett R.C.O.C./R.C.E.M.E. C.O.C.T.C. Birket was an Instructor here at Barriefield and was an Armt QMS .He was also in charge of avehicle Recovery unit.He was TQ'D to the hilt.Amrd Vehicle driver,Motorcyclist,Motor Mechanic,Diesel Mechanic,plus a bunch more...a real Gearhead so it was obvious he had real value as an instructor.Also included a series of phots and testimony into a serious crash involvng his Wrecker and a Harvard on Strafing practice killing his CO Capt. Bob Harvey and the Pilot. The photos are incredible. Two Battledress jackets,I pair trousers, hats,medals ,photo album,documents, RCAF Flying gloves, Army goves,flashlight,badges,books,just a wonderful time capsule to one man's service. Even the 1943 calender is till tacked to the lid of the box...neat grouping.

Was this a recent acquisition? I really like the artwork on the magazines. I've never seen those before. Would I be able to get some scans of the mags?

The Royal Canadian Ordnance Corps Museum, in Montreal, would definitely be interested in this, either as a donation or perhaps a purchase.

...Well if they are interested I,m going to ask 750 bucks for the whole horde...I have no idea how something this large and heavy could be shipped though so it may be too much for them...m
