This database provides notes on over 9300 RCAF personnel. These were previously published by us in a non-searchable form and we hope the new database structure makes it easier to find what you are looking for.
These notes were assembled by Jean Schadskaje over many years from research books, biographies, mentions on websites etc. and were originally intended for private use, not publication, hence the frequent use of shorthand terms. Because these notes were works-in-progress they may include errors: if you find any, please let us know via the Helpdesk.
They make available information on many RCAF personnel, some of which is unavailable elsewhere in the searchable context provided here.
Researchers may cross-reference names with the 45,000 entries in our Paradie Archive
In January 2018 our colleague François Dutil began an exercise to review and correct entries where appropriate, particularly in relation to 438 Squadron RCAF.
