WW II Photo Collection of George Mandia 


RCAF 1940 - 1945 Crane-operator  - 439 Tiger 1944 1945 ?

These photos were scanned by George's son Richard, and sent to me to use on History segment of The Unofficial Homepage of 439 Tiger Squadron web-site. However, as you can see, these are a rich testament to the hard work of the unsung heroes of 439 Squadron, the ground crews, without whom, Victory in the air and on the ground would not attainable. So that is why they are posted here in their entirety. To George, the oldest 439 Tiger that I know of..... Tiger ! Tiger ! and..... 

Thank-you !
