St. John's Philatelic Society

The St. John’s Philatelic Society has visited our website and discovered several articles we have posted concerning postage stamps and envelopes from Gander during WWII and post war eras. They asked for and received R. Pelley’s permission to publish these articles in their news letter. The first was published this month with plans to publish others. This gives us great pleasure in knowing the research carried out documenting the airports history has a value appreciated by others.

A School History Project

It has been suggested by others in our group that it would be an interesting project for our schools to encourage students to study & research the history of Gander and it’s pioneers. Such a project would be a benefit in their education and to provide valuable research by seeking out old photos, interviews with those that lived in the old town and maybe discover lost journalistic articles. The GAHS would be more than happy to assist in setting up such a project.
