    Thanks for posting, its nice to get more information like this. My dad served at #10 Repair Depot which I believe was close to Curry Barracks and #3 SFTS. #3 SFTS flew mostly Harvards. Mr dad was an Air Frame mechanic and Propellor tech, he worked on Harvards, Avro Ansons, Cessna Cranes, Tiger Moths, Fleet Forts and Fairchild Cornells mostly.

      Thank you for the information. I do intend to expand the information (including No 10 RD) as time moves forward. Thank you again.
