Several months ago I bought the 3 volume The RCAF Overseas, and inside I found the name of the previous owner: The books were a bargain, and the signatures (all three volumes had the owner's name inscribed) didn't mean anything. However, whilst writing an email thanking the seller for the excellent service etc, I happened to mention the inscribed name. It turned out that the books belonged to her uncle, and she happened to mention that he had been in the RAF, and the RCAF. It sounds like she was very fond of her uncle, but didn't have a lot of details about him. So after being given his full name, I did a bit of digging and was amazed at the (little) info I found. The next post details what I found.
