    Family tree of Solomon BENJAMIN (1873-1942) & Frances "Fanny" PHILLIPS (1875-1960) and their descendants

    I don't know when this diagram was drawn, or by whom. It was provided to me by my mum on her return from a visit to England, so I assume that my mum & her siblings might have created it, possibly about 1980.

    Map: Bermuda, City of Hamilton
    Map: Bermuda, Paget Parish

    Paget Parish is where our only hospital in Bermuda is located, King Edward VII Memorial Hospital (abbreviated KEMH), built in 1920 to replace the old Cottage Hospital (once visited by Mark Twain) on Happy Valley Road, Devonshire Parish, which itself was opened on 11 March 1894.

    Anyone listed on this website as having been born since 1920:
       • in Paget Parish, but with no location within Paget Parish; or
       • in Bermuda, but with no location within Bermuda
    chances are that they were born at King Edward Memorial Hospital (KEMH).

    Canadian Armed Forces

    The Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) are the unified military forces of Canada, including land, sea, and air commands, referred to as the Canadian Army, Royal Canadian Navy, and the Royal Canadian Air Force.
    Canadian Armed Forces: Europe

    Canadian Forces Europe (CFE) was the Canadian Forces military formation in Europe during the Cold War. The Canadian Forces assisted other NATO allies in watching the military activities of Warsaw Pact and the Soviet Union.
    Canadian Armed Forces: 1 Canadian Air Group

    No. 1 Canadian Air Group (1 CAG) was headquarters at CFB Lahr, West Germany. The initial eight squadrons flying the CF-104 within 1 Canadian air division were incrementally reduced, first to six and then down to three squadrons, contributing to the reduction from air division to air wing/group strength. This was largely due to a high attrition rate for the CF-104. While a total of 238 single-seat and dual-seat aircraft were built for the RCAF, 113 Canadian aircraft were lost during the 24 year era of the Starfighter, and 37 pilots died.

    In 1970, the Canadian government decided to reduce the strength of the Air Division to only three squadrons, and to relinquish its nuclear strike role in favour of conventional attack. 1 Air Division was redesignated 1 Canadian Air Group. 422, 427, and 430 Squadrons were disbanded. 439 and 441 Squadrons replaced all but 421 Squadron in 4 Wing at Canadian Forces Base (CFB) Baden-Sollingen. Of the remaining three squadrons, 421 and 441 were committed to converting to ground attack roles, leaving (my) 439 Squadron to continue tactical reconnaissance missions.
    Canadian Armed Forces: Maritime Air Group

    Maritime Air Group (MAG) is responsible for management of ail air resources engaged in maritime patrol, maritime surveillance, and anti-submarine warfare. The commander of Maritime Air Group, while responsible to the commander of Air Command, is under the operational control of the commander of Maritime Command while carrying out surveillance roles. A close working relationship between Maritime Command and Maritime Air Group enables them to use a common Operations Centre. The group conducts surveillance flights over Canada's coastal waters and the Arctic. It also provides anti-submarine air forces as part of Canada's contribution to NATO.
    Canadian Armed Forces: Squadron: 439
    Canadian Armed Forces: Squadron: 33 (VU-33)
    Canadian Armed Forces: Squadron: 407 (VP-407)
