This article first appeared on the Vintage Wings of Canada (VWC) History and Heroes e-zine, February 2012 edition, in recognition of Black History Month. It was one of two related pieces published by VWC that month.
Readers interested in the broader story of Canada's black Second World War airmen, or F/O Allan Selwyn Bundy's personal history beyond his operational tour on 404 (Buffalo) Squadron, are invited to have a look at that other VWC piece, for which a link is provided at the end of this revised and updated Buffalo Soldier story.

This is the cover design that accompanied the original article, reproduced here courtesy of its creator, VWC editor and graphics director, Dave O’Malley.
