I found these photographs in a photo envelope. However, did not write a date on anything, so I'm not sure what year it was. I'm guessing 1988 based on what I see in the photographs (and who I see in them). Also, not everybody's name is indicated, so there are a few unknowns. Select each of the thumbnails below to examine the photo and its information.

In this picture you see Leo Kelly VE3HUN now silent key, presenting Gord Hogarth VE3CNA & Audrey Little VA3YD of our archive committee the original Cease Fire Order that ended the Second World War on the Western Front for British, Canadian & Polish troops. The President that night, Bob Chrysler VE3IEL looks on.

Novice Roundup and S.A.R.C. CW contest. The trophy was donated to the club by Ed Charlton, VE3FCE, and Jim Ashfield, VE3FOE.
