RAF, RAAF, RNZAF Personnel in Canada


Commonwealth Personnel Serving in Canada ROYAL AIR FORCE, ROYAL AUSTRALIAN AIR FORCE, AND ROYAL NEW ZEALAND AIR FORCE PERSONNEL DECORATED FOR SERVICE IN CANADA DURING THE SECOND WORLD WAR. During the Second World War, many members of the Commonwealth air forces served in Canada as part of the British Commonwealth Air Training Plan, Ferry Command, or on staff duties. A significant number of these people were decorated for their services. To the degree that their work assisted the RCAF and was in conjunction with RCAF operations, their achievments should be known alongside those of their RCAF comrades. The data base is arranged alphabetically. However, a listing of awards by unit is appended to the compilation. This data base was compiled by Hugh A. Halliday, 1594 Delia Crescent, Orleans, Ontario, K4A 1W9, with generous assistance from Surgeon Commander (ex F/O) John Blatherwick, CM, CD, MD, New Westminster, British Columbia. Hugh Halliday welcomes written comments, additions or corrections sent to his home or through the internet (HUGHHALL@NETCOM.CA).
