    RCAF Harvard 2808 was with 32 SFTS at Moose Jaw during the war. It served with the post war RCAF, before being transferred to the French Air Force in 1958.

    RCAF Harvard 2727 was also 32 SFTS. It crashed on 18 July 1942, mid air collision with Harvard AJ755 (same School). Court of Inquiry blamed pilot of 2727 for attempting to start mock dogfight without instructions. Pilot of 2727, P/O F. Biver from Belgium, was killed.
