Hi -
I have a photo of 404 Squadron at Trenton, Ontario. My grandfather was an RCAF chaplain and appears in the photo, so I can only assume he had some affiliation with 404. What's your source for all this information? I would be curious to see if there is any mention of my grandfather, Fl.Lt. Gordon W. Porter.
Thanks very much.
Steve

I’ll have a look to see if I can find his name in any of the 404 Squadron records

Cheers
