George, you are most welcome. I’m looking forward to your next request. And you can see I’m putting up the Operational Air Records of the RCAF “as we speak”....so helpfully that will help you in your research (and you won’t even need me....lol)

Cheers

Because of this thread, I have found info on 8 guys already that I was needing a bit of help on, mainly in the No. 124 Ferry Squadron, as far as not needing you, I believe we are just getting started :-), one of the Americans you helped me with led me to another 5, and more questions, do not want to bombard you with them all at once, so will hit you up a little here and a little there, Truly appreciate the help !

That’s excellent George. I just posted info on 147 Ferry Squadron, and I noted that they have “flight manifests” on their records for passengers. I will be a while posting all this new info (287 reels.....and so far I’ve done about 30 I think) as quickly as I can. I have to confirm the info in them, as the microfilm crews were a little “sloppy” in their indentification of what the reel holds, so have to go thru them to ensure it’s correct.

These records should help you a lot, as soon as I can get them all identified and posted with the proper links.

And YES, I appreciate the “little at a time”.....so I can give you and other’s help concurrently if at all possible.

Cheers George
