READ SEARCH TIPS FIRST
Further RCAF information is on our Pages Relating to Canada and our RCAF Notes Database

Blue headings = Sort on that column. To search on single digit Squadron add 'sqd' to Search e.g. 7 sqd
This database lists all known RCAF flying-related personnel who served 1939 - 1945 and onwards in many cases.
In November 2017 François Dutil began adding extensive information and many images from his research files,
for which we are grateful. Please contact us via our Helpdesk if you have additional information or images.
"Conversion from the original data held as images of old teletype sheets must have taken Major Paradie years.
The Paradie database is as close to a treasure as the World will see.” François Dutil

DUPLICATES EXIST IN THIS DATABASE
We have integrated entries from several databases in the Paradie Archive and as a result there may be more than one entry for a given individual. To ensure you read all the data we have on a person, use the Service Number (without the prefix J/ P/ R/ etc.) to perform a further search for more information on that person.
DATA ALIGNMENT IN PROCESS OF BEING ADJUSTED
Owing to problems with encoding methods, some records require manual adjustment to bring data elements within the record into alignment. This is a lengthy and ongoing process. If the record you are looking at is hard to read, it means we have yet to make the appropriate manual adjustments, so send us a message via the Helpdesk and we will correct that record.
SEARCHING ON SERIAL NUMBERS
Most records were originally encoded with aircraft serial numbers in the format AB 123. The standard is to use the format AB123. We have a long term project underway to change all serial numbers to the standard form, but with 50,000+ records this is a long process. Try 123 by itself.

Search now permitted on 2 character minimum (previously 3)
If you would like our team to research a family member or friend who appears in this database, contact us via the Helpdesk. We will send you instructions.

In his first contact with enemy aircraft on 29 December 1944 he destroyed five planes. By the end of January 1945 he had claimed a further five victories and shared a sixth. He was killed in action on 3 March 1945 near Coesfeld, Germany.. Commemorated Runnymede Memorial, Panel 278. United Kingdom. Son Of Paul And Edewisca Audet; Husband Of Iris Christina Audet, Of Pinner, Middlesex. Flight Lieutenant Audet was strafing a German train west of Munster. The train returned fire and Audet’s Spitfire crashed to the ground. It was not immediately known if he was killed in the crash, and for a time it was believed that he had been taken prisoner by the Germans. When he did not return at the end of the war, an official inquiry was held and although there was some evidence that he may have been killed while in German custody, it could not be conclusively determined.

Lawrence was born 10 Sep 1919 in St John’s, Newfoundland alongside his twin brother Wilfred. The brothers were born to Froim (Frank) and Esther nee Lusher. Frank and Esther had a further two children Marion in 1922 and Cyril in 1929. Lawrence attended school at Bishop Field College, Bond Street in St John’s, and then attended Memorial University College from 1938 – 1939. When war was declared Lawrence was the second man from St John’s to volunteer after his friend. His records state: ‘They were a 'local' who enlisted into the Royal Air Force in Newfoundland. They joined after August 1940. Was appointed as a Class F Reservist’ Lawrence joined the RAF and his twin Wilfred joined the Army. Wilfred’s family have stated that he served for 6 years in heavy artillery in the British Army. Both Lawrence and Wilfred were stationed in the UK for a while. Lawrence wrote to his mother ‘that he loved to fly over Ireland, it was so lush and green’. Their sister Marion worked as a civilian secretary for the head of the Naval Armaments Depot. Whilst serving in the RAF, Lawrence was given the nicknames Benny and Barney as seen in the book extract below: ‘On 3 February 1942, the remaining aircrews of the original four-squadron wing that had been assigned to the defence of Singapore had arrived in Karachi, together with a cargo of crated Hurricanes. With the victorious Japanese fleet now poised to enter the Bay of Bengal, it was decided that the first eight Hurricanes to be assembled were to be flown to Colombo to defend Ceylon. The pilots assigned were Flight Lieutenant Peter Fletcher, a Rhodesian; Flying Officer Joe Edwards, a Canadian; Pilot Officer Ian Adamson, a Scot from the Argentine who wore the shoulder flashes BLAV (British Latin American Volunteers); Pilot Officer Gordon Conway; Warrant Officer Thomas Taggart Young, an American in RAF uniform; Flight Sergeants Barney Banikhin and Bill Higgins; and Sergeant ‘Ginger’ Hicks. It would have been hard to find a more cosmopolitan group. We lost two pilots at this time. To test Japanese reaction a sweep was flown over Chittagong, on the far side of the Bay of Bengal. On the way back Barney Banikhin made a successful forced landing, but Hamish Weatherall developed a bad glycol leak and was killed when he spun in, apparently overcome by fumes. A fortnight later I handed over my aircraft to Piers Worrall, who took over readiness in it. I had flown it twice the previous day, but when he took off later in a scramble he lost his engine in a dead cut and was burned to death when he crashed into a pillbox at the end of the runway. In mid-1942, No 136 Squadron moved to Red Road, a strip in the centre of Calcutta, from where it could operate as a single unit. Because of the severe camber on Red Road, the Hurricanes normally took off singly on the crown of the road to assist in keeping straight. Failure to do so could have disastrous consequences, as Gordon Conway discovered one day when, while taking off as number two of a pair, he failed to keep on top of the camber and progressively drifted to port as engine torque and adverse camber combined. Just as he got airborne the port wing took the top off a sentry box that had foolishly been sited right on the edge of the road (it never was again). Thanks to the Hurricane’s ruggedness and some skilful flying, Conway got down with several feet of more losses in 1942 when Barney Banikhin flew into the ground during a practice attack and was killed instantly, and a month later the squadron’s American pilot, Thomas Taggart Young, hit a tree in the same exercise area and died from his injuries three days later’. Extract taken from: Jackson, Robert. Through the Eyes of the World's Fighter Aces: The Greatest Fighter Pilots of World War Two. Pen & Sword Books.

25.5 enemy destroyed including 19 V-1. Navigator R.R. Bruce


Citation DFC: BANNOCK, S/L Russell (C1086) - Distinguished Flying Cross - No.418 Squadron Award effective 3 October (supplement of 29 Sept) 1944 as per London Gazette of that date & AFRO 2637/44 dated 8 December 1944. This officer has completed numerous sorties including several attacks on enemy airfields on which he has caused much disruption. He is a highly efficient flight commander and has showed much skill and initiative in the planning and execution of his missions. His successes include the destruction of many flying bombs, three of which he destroyed in one patrol. NOTE: Public Record Office Air 2/9159 has original recommendation by W/C A. Barker on 31 July 1944 when he had flown 12 sorties (54 hours ten minutes), although the statistics given below do not agree with those elsewhere in the document. Since joining this squadron in June, Squadron Leader Bannock has completed four Intruder sorties, one Day Ranger and 14 Anti-Diver patrols and has been outstanding in his keenness for any form of operational flying. On his second operational sortie on the night of 14th June, Squadron Leader Bannock attacked and destroyed a Messerschmitt 110 at Avord airfield. Then, using the burning enemy aircraft as a target indicator, he bombed the airfield with two 500-pound bombs. On July 17th, this officer carried out a long Night Ranger to Leipzig, and in spite of doubtful weather conditions, reached his target area, destroyed an unidentified enemy aircraft at Altenburg and probably destroyed a second. In addition to destroying enemy aircraft, Squadron Leader Bannock has been particularly enthusiastic and successful in shooting down flying bombs at night. Since June 19th this pilot has shot down a total of 16 flying bombs, 15 over the sea and one over land; of these three were destroyed on one patrol on the night of July 3rd and four on July 6th. Squadron Leader Bannock is an excellent officer and has shown much initiative in the planning and execution of his sorties. His personal example and devotion to duty together with his willingness to pass on to crews less experienced than himself the lessons learnt from his sorties against flying bombs, have done much to increase and maintain the high standard of morale not only of the aircrew but of all with whom he has come in contact.

Son of Christopher Pennycuick Bartlett and Dora Margaret Bartlett (née Smales), of Fort Qu'Appelle, Saskatchewan, Canada. Bartlett Lake in Saskatchewan named after him. Grave inscription: 'To All The World He Was But One, To Us He Was All The World'.

DFC Citation: Flight Lieutenant Christopher Smales Bartlett of 216 Squadron. One night in May, 1941, this officer carried out a flight which necessitated transporting a party of Royal Engineers and landing them beside a highly strategical railway bridge which it was intended to destroy. Much of the complete success of this daring and difficult operation can be attributed to the skill displayed by this officer. Flight Lieutenant Bartlett has also executed eleven successful night raids. Bar to DFC: Acting Wing Commander Christopher Smales Bartlett, DFC of 434 (RCAF) Sqn. In the course of his second tour of operations this officer has attacked many strongly defended targets, including several attacks on Berlin and numerous others on industrial centres in the Ruhr. He is a forceful and courageous leader whose example has inspired all.

Battle of Britain. Wounded on 1940-09-15 at 15:30hrs. He was shot down in his Hurricane I (V6625) over Shell Haven, Essex by a Bf 109.Retired Feb 1959 as Wing Commander 2010 Born Kamloops, British Columbia, Canada, 7 June 1916

“Butch” Barton joined the Royal Air Force at age 19, travelling to England to take a short service commission. He started his career before the war on biplane fighters with 41 Squadron. With the outbreak of the war, Barton joined 249 Squadron flying Hurricanes at RAF Boscombe Down. He became a flight commander with 249 during the Battle of Britain, once bailing from his Hurricane after it was hit from return fire from a Dornier Do 17 bomber. By the end of the Battle of Britain, he was awarded a DFC for his “outstanding leadership”. With 249 Squadron, he also took part on the air war over Malta, adding to the total of his victories. Under Barton’s leadership, 249 Squadron became one of the most respected and lethal units on Malta and in the RAF. By war’s end he was a Wing Commander with 14 victories to his credit. The Battle of Britain London Monument web page says this about Barton: “During his career he had always tried to maintain the highest standards of chivalry, once severely reprimanding an inexperienced colleague who had finished off a damaged German aircraft, killing the pilot as he was attempting to crash-land over England... “Butch” Barton died on 2nd September 2010. His ashes were scattered on his favourite lake in British Columbia on the morning of 15th September, Battle of Britain Day.”

Pilot Officer John ‘Jack’ Benzie disappeared during heavy fighting over the east of London 80 years ago on September 7. His remains went missing for decades – until two metal detectorists stumbled across parts of the aircraft wreckage at Blackacre in Theydon Bois, Essex, while looking for Roman coins. Benzie, from Winnipeg, was born on March 14 1915 and educated at St John’s Technical School. He served in Princess Patricia’s Canadian Light Infantry for three years prior to joining the RAF on a short service commission and came to England on March 16 1939 on the RMS Aurania. “He was trained by experienced instructors, men like John Betty, who had hundreds of hours in their logbook. “The training was thorough but, in the words of Tom Neil, his near contemporary at Montrose, still harked back to the last war. “He got his wings at Montrose in December 1939 and was commissioned as Pilot Officer. “After further training on Hurricanes he was posted to 242 Squadron at Church Fenton.” The squadron moved to France after the German invasion and he was shot down and baled out near Dunkirk on May 23. After recovering from his wounds, he re-joined the squadron on July 11, right at the start of the Battle of Britain, already a battle-scarred veteran. Benzie took off in Hurricane P2962 on September 7 and never returned from a combat over the Thames Estuary. He was reported missing “but believed to have lost his life”. A cable to his parents John and Agnes Benzie from Winnipeg on September 9 was confirmed by a letter written two days later. “An uncontrolled Hurricane which crashes into the ground from a great height makes a deep crater and at the time, investigating such crashes was not a high priority so Benzie was commemorated on the Runnymede Memorial. “It was not until 1976 that an aircraft archaeology group found the wreck of a Hurricane and the remains of the pilot at a depth of 18 feet underground. “The location, Theydon Bois, Essex, fitted Benzie’s last known position.” “No conclusive evidence to identify the aircraft or the pilot could be found to meet their criteria,” “Almost certainly, they are the remains of Pilot Officer John Benzie. He is remembered on the Runnymede Memorial, Panel 5."

Hurricane P2962 failed to return after combat ober the Thames Estuary. Suspected crash site and remains found post war but not positively identified. Runnymede Age 25
