Daily Diary – Links – No. 32 Elementary Flying Training School

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. 39 Service Flying Training School and other sources. The list may not include all fatalities of personnel who died while stationed at RCAF Station Swift Current. From my reading so far there were 17 deaths of service personnel that were stationed at Prince Albert.
