I checked my stuff and found that Bernard Loonam in 1935-36 was a member of a committee on the FASNY BOARD. IN 1937 he was assigned to the Law Committee of the NYS FIREMANS ASSO. (FASNY I ASSUME). At the time he was chairman of the Nassau County Asso. Law committee. He is also listed as a drill official in programs starting in at least 1939 and beyond 1947. In 1937 a relative,Walter, was a 2nd Lieut. In Hose 3 of Freeport.
