I hope you can figure out how to post them, I'm curious too.

Bill


I don't think those pics are from that time as CF-BGZ as Channing Clark finished the rebuild around 1968/69 and these pics are from around that time-frame if you look at them as it appears to be Channing Clark in the photos. I sent them off to Chris and I'm sure he will get them on but I will have one Widgeon pic for you that you might like and if everything works out ok, I'll send it to Chris and hopefully he will post it also.

Dennis



I agree, I wasn't aware of the time frame.
