Donald Mitchell, a veteran of 38 years of departmental service, retired in April 1965. He was inspector-in-charge of the Victoria radio regulations office.

 

Mr. Mitchell's career in radio dates back to the First World War when he served as a radio operator with the British Merchant Naval Supply Service. He made many trips in the Mediterranean area and Near East and later on various passenger liners plying the Atlantic.

 

His appointment, by request, to the Hudson's Bay Company's "Baychimo" introduced Mr. Mitchell to Canada's West Coast and, in 1927, he joined the government radio service. Throughout the years he held various positions, rising to in­spector-in-charge of radio regulations in Victoria.

 

On April 12 many friends and co­workers, including several officers from Vancouver Region Air Services, gathered to honor Mr. Mitchell on his retirement. He was presented with a set of matched golf clubs, while Mrs. Mitchell received a bouquet of pink roses.
