Howells, Ray

Ray Howells was born February 26, 1941 in Trenton, Ontario.  He grew up near the air base there, and as his uncle was in the RCAF Ray too was motivated to join, which he did right out of high school.  He spent most of his time at RCAF stations in Quebec, where he was connected to 12 and 13 ACW squadrons.  He served on the Pine Tree Line at radar bases and was later deployed to Germany on a NATO base.  All told he served 47 years in the Canadian Forces, from the cadets through to the reserves.  We interviewed Ray Hwells at the Sunnybrook Veterans’ Wing in October 2023.
