Re: RCAF 406 Sqdn questions

Many, Many thanks for the info Temujin, WOW was not expecting the outcome on Cpl G. Grant, I guess it was that I am used to seeing R, J, or C in front of the RCAF Service number that I thought he was R.A.F. learning some thing new, Thanks again for the info !

Re: RCAF 441 Sqdn ???

Guess it made sense to someone, the squadron is written to have disbanded on August 7, 1945. You would have figured they would have stayed with the Spits, unless they were really wore out ! Anyhow, Thank You so very much for the info on this squadron

Cheers

Re: RCAF 441 Sqdn ???

Thanks for the info on F/O McCabe, but it brings up a question, I read through all the paperwork, and they said the only aircraft that RCAF 441 Squadron operated was the Spitfire, so that raises a question of why F/O McCabe in a Mustang when he crashed ??? Any ideas on that ???
