409 Squadron RCAF: The Nighthawks

This Carousel view permits easy movement through the book by clicking the forward and back arrows. If you prefer, you can read the book in a more traditional page-by-page view to which we have added searchable text, through which you can find specific items by using our Highlighting facility. Click on the centered page in the Carousel to be taken to its equivalent in the page-by-page view. Or, click a page icon below to be taken direct to that page number, from which you can easily navigate forward or back.
Note that, currently, if you return to the Carousel you will be brought back to the opening page.

This book was rescued by Kit Kennard on behalf of the extended Kennard family and all those associated with 409 Squadron RCAF. Kit approached us to add this record to the people's history, complementing our extensive research material which covers over 50,000 RCAF personnel and activities, detailed in our summary of Canadian material. We also have some 10,000 mostly previously unpublished official RCAF photos in preparation.
