From the Back Cover
On the Wing: A History of the Windsor Spitfires covers the history of the Squadron from its first inception in 1946/47, through its rebirth in 1975, to the teams final years, battling tremendous adversity to become back-to-back Memorial Cup Champions. Complete with more than 150 photographs, many of them in colour, and many vailable for the first time, On the Wing offers a history of the team, its heroes, struggles and victories, and is a volume that no true Windsor Spitfire fan, or, indeed, hockey fan, should be without.

operated the Windsor Bulldogs there for the next 10 years
