I received this from a man I like to call "Friend".


Above is the title page from the War Amps Digest, "Hanging A Legend: The NFB's Shameful Attempt To Discredit Billy Bishop, VC", compiled and written by H. Clifford Chadderton, CEO of the War Amputations of Canada.

As I have been gathering information for these pages on Billy Bishop, and the controversy that Paul Cowan has stirred up around him, I came into contact with Mr. Chadderton in my quest for information. The digest mentioned above has been a source of much of this information. Not the sole source, but more like what I intend this site to be. A source that has almost all the information you could want on the Billy Bishop controversy in one place. Mr. Chadderton gathered, all the pertinent info from the Canadian Senate sub-committee hearings and from different publications as well and put them in the digest. I have also gathered info from other places, but this digest has proven to be the most single valuable asset I've received so far.

I presently have two copies, the first I received from another friend, Steven E. Dieter. This was when I started putting things together. The 2nd copy, I received recently from Mr. Chadderton, who at my request autographed it. For those who may have trouble reading the scanned graphic above, he wrote the following:


To: Al Lowe
It is a pleasure to send this
copy of Hanging a Legend. It
will be due to the interest of
wonderful people like you that
we can preserve our military
Heritage.
(signed) Cliff Chadderton 22 Oct 98

And no, I didn't ask for the 2nd copy specifically. The War Amps emailed and asked me if I wanted a copy to help in my research, they would send me one. I informed them that I already had a copy, but if Mr. Chadderton wouldn't mind, I would really like to have an autographed copy. He obviously didn't object at all to my request.
The War Amputations of Canada is a non-profit organization in Canada. They now serve the needs of Canadian amputees from all causes, not just war. The War Amps receive NO government funding, so please donate whatever you can to help them out. Your money will not be wasted.
