Station Magazine

The Commonwealth Air Training Plan Museum, Brandon, Manitoba has created a transcription of this Daily Diary.
Their web site is AirMuseum.ca


This list was compiled from the entries in the Daily diaries of No. 11 Elementary Flying Training School and other sources.  The list likely does not include all fatalities of personnel who died while stationed at RCAF Station Cap de la Madeline, and likely includes some errors. Currently this list contains 11 personnel.
