Duncan SHAW, Air Force Officer: (1912-2005)
Boy Airman joined the Royal Canadian Air Force in 1929 to learn a trade. He served in Bomber Command and later became a wing commander
By Buzz BOURDON, Special to the Globe and Mail, Wednesday, December 28, 2005, Page S7
Ottawa -- When the Royal Canadian Air Force accepted Duncan SHAW for enlistment at the tender age of 16½, he knew his luck had changed for the better. After taking the oath of allegiance in April, 1929, he entered the Royal Canadian Air Force with the rank of "boy airman" as part of a short-lived scheme to train teenagers as skilled tradesmen. He thought he had it pretty good. Three meals a day and a roof over his head was a lot more than some people were getting at the beginning of the Depression. Not only that, the air force was even paying him.
The Royal Canadian Air Force Mr. SHAW was so proud to join had been formed just five years earlier with 62 officers and 262 airmen scattered across Canada. For 10 years it was a federal service that provided mercy flights, photo surveys, fire spotting, fishery and smuggling patrols -- anything instead of prepare for a war most thought would never come.
Life in the Royal Canadian Air Force at that time meant coping with low pay and slow promotion. Despite the disadvantages, Mr. SHAW enjoyed a good social life. In 1937, he and his unit, No. 2 (Army Cooperation) Squadron moved to Ottawa, along with No. 3 (Bomber) Squadron. "A group of Friends had sprung up who did many things together, sort of like 'that old gang of mine.' [There were] no steady girlfriends to siphon away the little money we got," he wrote in a memoir.
In 1935, things slowly improved when Ottawa finally woke up to the possibility that there might be a European war in the future and gradually increased its defence budget. A few new squadrons were formed and eventually the Royal Canadian Air Force had 4,000 men and 270 aircraft.
Everything changed when Canada declared war on Germany on September 10, 1939. Nine days earlier, Mr. SHAW had been promoted flight sergeant. Six months later, he was commissioned as an officer. The Royal Canadian Air Force needed thousands of new officers as it expanded to 215,200 men and women; as for the prospects of those who had joined before the war, the sky was the limit. By September 1, 1941, Mr. SHAW was promoted to squadron leader.
The following year, he was in Britain as the senior armament officer at Royal Canadian Air Force Overseas Headquarters before being posted to the newly-formed No. 6 (Royal Canadian Air Force) Group, part of the Royal Air Force's Bomber Command.
Mr. SHAW was now responsible for the bewildering array of bombs and munitions required by the 14 Lancaster and Halifax squadrons of No. 6 Group to attack German-occupied Europe in the Royal Air Force's intensive bombing campaign. Starting in January, 1943, No. 6 Group dropped a total of 126,122 tons of bombs on the Reich, losing 814 aircraft and 3,500-plus aircrew.
Mr. SHAW remained in the Royal Canadian Air Force after the war. In 1957, he was posted to Metz, France, as the chief armament officer at No. 1 Air Division headquarters. It was an exciting time to be there, as the air division played an important part in keeping the peace during the height of the Cold War with its 12 F-86 Sabre jet squadrons. Mr. SHAW had overall responsibility for the maintenance and servicing of the Sabres' weapons systems.
Retired group captain Douglas WURTELE of Ottawa, Mr. SHAW's boss in Metz, recalled: "He was a very reliable officer, very calm. You could count on him to do an excellent job. He never got excited."
During his 29-year career, Mr. SHAW served in all three of the Royal Canadian Air Force's eras: the pre-war period, when the force that had trouble just surviving; the war, when the Royal Canadian Air Force grew dramatically as the fourth-biggest Allied air force; and the post-war years that saw it expand by 1958 to 56,000 men and women, with 41 regular and auxiliary squadrons.
After retiring in 1964 as a wing commander, Mr. SHAW owned a company that sold and repaired scientific instruments. But he "loved the air force, it was his life," said his son, Douglas.
Duncan Oliver SHAW was born on October 18, 1912, in Toronto. He died in Ottawa on December 6, 2005, of natural causes. He was 93. He is survived his sons Douglas and David. He was predeceased by his wife Marjorie, his son John, his brother Archibald and his sister Mima.
