Memories of RCAF/CFB Rockcliffe

Memories of RCAF/CFB Rockcliffe

By David Smith August 8, 2017

 

Old pictures and memories of Rockcliffe still stand

What a new facelift, stripped to bare sand

A military base that reeks of history

Documented in Facebook, to fill in the mystery

 

Old pictures and documents as the Base comes alive

The PMQs and memories thrive

A new facelift, what was torn down?

A place to call home, memories still, safe and sound

Rockcliffe, like yesterday, young in our prime

In PMQs with our families at the time

 

Growth was phenomenal, the chapel was here

Marriages and conferences we held so dear

General Officers Mess to rubble it became

Buildings demolished, emotions inflame

The school moved off base, closure was real

Things become temporary, an uncertainty to feel

 

Optimism takes over, as Facebook comes alive

Memories of Rockcliffe, we contribute, and thrive

We lived for a time, and now we moved on

Memories of Rockcliffe, a light has shone

Think of our experiences and how we grew

Childhood memories, vivid and true

 

What a joy, Rockcliffe from the original start

How we grew, through our postings, we depart

Left in memories, and relationships, Just think

People their influence to document in ink

 

Think of Rockcliffe, our growth how we’ve come

A Rockcliffe attachment, how experiences run

Thanks be to Facebook and residence who care

To show love and concern, and blogging, we share
