RCAF 6 Bomber Group Crest
Commemorative crest of the original RCAF 6 Group crest designed at 6 Group headquarters in 1943-1944. Found recently in the RCAF archives of RCAF 6 Group from over 75 years ago, this crest was used by RCAF Headquarters in England with the symbolic image of the Canadian Maple Leaf superimposed on the Yorkshire White Rose with the RCAF 6 Bomber Group number in
the center. A true but totally forgotten symbol of our RCAF bomber boys, resurrected by HALIFAX 57 RESCUE, as a tribute to the RCAF and Bomber Command's contribution to Allied Victory in WW2.
