Legacy of Heroes: Flight into Danger, the second issue in the Edmonton Police Service’s popular comic book series, is now available. The exciting story, taken from the Edmonton Police Service archives, describes the first time in Canadian history an aircraft was used by police in a criminal pursuit.
Edson was the impromptu destination for pilot and police passenger in this hair-raising adventure. They landed on 1st Ave and Wop later took off from Main Street.

‘Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow’
