Liberator Training in IndiaNo he wasn't posted via Canada, but the information on 356 Squadron in R Quirks website was very useful. From further review of his log book, I find that he flew six training sorties at No 6 RFU totaling 24 hours 45 mins over a one week period, most of them with F/Lt Walker, with whom he was posted to 356 Squadron.
