OTTAWA, June 22, 2012 /CNW/ - To mark the Queen's unveiling of the
Bomber Command Memorial in London, UK, on June 28, The War Amps is
releasing the late Jack W. Singer's book, Grandpa's War in Bomber Command, a personal account of his experiences serving in one of the most
dangerous occupations of the war.
Born and raised in Toronto, Jack W. Singer joined the RCAF at age 19 and
trained in Canada under the British Commonwealth Air Training Plan as a
bomb-aimer. Singer wrote this memoir for his grandchildren in 1998,
and, following his wish, it is now being made available to a wider
audience at a cost recovery price of $15 to help people understand how
it really was in World War II.
The War Amps is also re-releasing its internationally award-winning
Military Heritage Series documentary The Boys of Kelvin High. It tells the remarkable story of the Canadian volunteers who flew in
mighty bombers through enemy territory night after night. Excerpts from
the book Grandpa's War in Bomber Command are featured in this documentary.
The Association is also adding various short clips to its YouTube
Channel, including an interview with Singer's grandchildren. This
interview and other short videos related to Bomber Command can be found
under the Bomber Command playlist: youtube.com/warampsofcanada.
Like all War Amps productions, The Boys of Kelvin High was funded by corporate donations and is available at a cost recovery
price of $14. It can also be purchased in conjunction with Grandpa's War in Bomber Command at a special package price of $25 by calling 1 800 250-3030 or visiting waramps.ca.
B-roll footage of Canadians in Bomber Command, excerpts from The War
Amps documentary The Boys of Kelvin High, two War Amps Bomber Command
vignettes, as well as archival photos are available and cleared for
