    Default BCATP Memorial Gates - Replica

    In 1949 a set of Memorial Gates was unveiled at RCAF Station Trenton (Ontario) commemorating the British Commonwealth Air Training Plan as a joint RAF-RAAF-RCAF-RNZAF project. The gates are still there, having been rededicated at a 2009 ceremony. An excellent image of these gates appears at http://www.ebay.ca/itm/Memorial-gates-RCAF-airport-Trenton-Ontario-postcard-Royal-Canadian-Air-force-/380614092045

    It appears that a replica of these gates (three-quarter size) was made (date uncertain - possibly as early as 1959 and to later than 1966), displayed at an Air Force Day at RCAF Station Rockcliffe, and then lost. There is a theory that they were sent (transferred) to an institution in Great Britain.

    Does anyone have any recollection of seeing these gates in the UK ?
