Gone by Not Forgotten!

Most of our Southwold Township residents are familiar with the former RCAF N0.4 Bombing and Gunnery School just west of Fingal now the home of the Fingal Wildlife Management Area.
What many residents do not realize is that this facility is still used about 6 times a year by volunteers from the London Civil Air Search and Rescue Association in conjunction with aircraft from RCAF Trenton for training for real emergencies.
