Notes on Veterans Guard pictures of TARBET; Probably not from Maple Creek

The pictures of James TARBET and his fellow Veterans Guards looked to be from Kananaskis, and some were labelled as such.  However, there were some that I (Jill) couldn’t place, and it was suggested perhaps VGC member TARBET might have trained in Maple Creek, Saskatchewan.

R.J. Henderson‘s opinion:

The two pictures with mountains (tall hills) are not from Maple Creek, and I have major doubts about the other two as well.  One has what appear to be a road grade or end of a runway showing.  The young VGC member could well have been guarding an airport in BC as part of his duties.
