News in the past couple of days that a fourth student at South may be linked to terrorism means the school can’t get out from under the media glare.
But let’s look at one South student who was in the Royal Canadian Air Force during WW II.
Tom Dibb, whose parents lived on High Street, enlisted in 1941.
He was the navigator in a Wellington bomber sent to bomb a harbour in Crete in 1944. Upon returning to North Africa his aircraft crashed near Tobruk.
He is buried at Benghazi in Libya in a Commonwealth cemetery. That cemetery was vandalized last year.
