Welcome to War and Tactics!    War and Tactics Forum is currently undergoing some modifications that might disable features you are used to. This is unabvoidable as we have to update the forum engine to a new structure that is incompatible with many of the features we had used so far. The good news: WaT will be more secure and stable, and most of the features we uninstalled will be a natural part of the new structure anyway. For the rest we will be looking for solutions.

In 1941 as part of the 'Destroyers for Bases' agreement between the UK and the US, the US was granted an air base near Stephenville Newfoundland.  The US Air Force operated the base until 1966 when it reverted to the Crown and then Canada.  It's now Stephenville International Airport.
The base was named after Harmon in 1948 (before that, it was simply Stephenville Airbase) so this card dates from the late 1940s or early 1950s.
