CAHS August meeting

August 31, 2023 @ 7:00 pm 9:00 pm

**VIRTUAL MEETING**

Our next chapter meeting will take place by Zoom only on Thursday 31 August 2023 at 7 pm CDT. Our speaker this month is Roger Gunn, author of Masters of the Air: The Great War Pilots McLeod, McKeever, and MacLaren. His biography is below. Roger will speak on the lives of Andrew McKeever and Donald MacLaren, two of the three pilots described in his book Masters of the Air. McKeever was the king of the two-seaters in the Great War. He was also a squadron leader in the fledgling Canadian Air Force in 1918 and 1919. MacLaren on the other hand accounted for 54 victories in World War One and was Canada’s third highest scoring ace, next to Bishop and Collishaw. MacLaren was instrumental in the founding of Trans-Canada Air Lines in the late 1930s. Both McKeever and MacLaren led very interesting lives, lives which Roger will bring to life in his presentation. Roger spoke to our chapter about the third subject of his book, Alan McLeod, VC, in January 2022.

Registration for this meeting is required at CAHS-MB.

Our meetings are free and open to CAHS members and everyone interested in Canadian aviation history. The meeting link will be provided around two hours before the meeting. Please register early enough to receive the link.

Roger’s book is available via the CAHS website. The chapter also has a few copies for sale, for $25 each. I will provide free local delivery in Winnipeg. Please reply to this email if you’re interested in purchasing a copy.
