Eric Mold – Canada’s Nuclear Strike Force

September 25, 2018 @ 12:00am

Please join us on Tuesday, September 25, 2018 to welcome our guest speaker Eric Mold.  He will address our Society on Canada’s Nuclear Strike Squadrons and their contribution to NATO.

Eric Mold spent ten years of service as a pilot in the Royal Air Force and twenty years of service as a pilot in the Royal Canadian Air Force.  His career spanned the period from immediately after the war to the mid-seventies experiencing significant development of jet fighter aircraft.  His stories are entertaining and informative and this one gives a fascinating picture of the time when, during the Cold War, Canada deployed six squadrons of nuclear armed aircraft to Europe as a part of our commitment to NATO. We are blessed to be able to hear first-hand this facet of Canadian military history that has largely been forgotten.
