    Hi,

    Hit this link: http://www.canadianwings.com/Aircraft/Database/listpage.php?page=289

    Unfortunately, not that many details are mentioned.

    Second link: http://chaa-recovery.ca/content/view/56/58/

    2794 was taken on strength on January 15, 1941 and struck off strength on October 18, 1960.

    I have a bit more information on this aircraft since the web page was created.

    It was with 4 TC from 15 January 1941, when it was issued to 32 SFTS at Moose Jaw. I don't have a date for when it went to 34 SFTS (which also fell under 4 TC). It was still at 32 SFTS in March 1941, when it received minor damage. It was sent to storage in August 1943, then went to No. 10 RD at Calgary for conversion to a wireless trainer in November 1943. It next went to 2 WS at Calgary, where it served till the end of the war. Post war it was stored or undergoing mods until late 1951, when it went to Training Command at RCAF MacDonald. By August 1952 it was back in storage. Sold in October 1960 to Davis Industries of Edmonton. This firm was a mostly a scrap metal dealer, but they sold a few aircraft complete. No record after that.

    If you have any information on this aircraft with 34 SFTS, I would love to see it.

    Many thanks for the replies to my request.These info will be used in a forthcoming caption of a photograph. I have this a/c coded n45 on the fuselage and in the LB of a Free French pilot at Medecine Hat in march/april 1943.
