    Paul,
    I concur with your list.
    As a matter of interest, there were two unsuccessful jumps in that time period;
    July 2nd 1927 Lt Thad Johnson (USAAC) Curtis P-1B 27-79, jumped too low, Ottawa ON
    June 8th 1939 F/O T.G. Fraser (RCAF) Hurricane 317, jumped too low, Mission BC

    One amendment suggested:

    For: "July 26th 1932 F/O Fowler Morgan Gobeil Armstrong (RCAF) Whitworth Siskin IIIA #23 at Belleville, Ontario"

    Read: "July 26th 1932 F/O Fowler Morgan Gobeil (RCAF) Armstrong-Whitworth Siskin IIIA #23 at Belleville, Ontario"

    Paul,

    There is an unverified civilian incident that you may want to look at; the following is extracted from THE STINSONS, A PICTORIAL HISTORY, John Underwood, 1976

    On January 8, 1936 the first production SR-7 took off on a routine test flight and disappeared above the low overcast. An hour later came shocking news from Canada. The SR-7, having drifted across the border, had crashed near Amherst, Ontario. The pilots, Cy Younglove and Jack Kelley had bailed out at low altitude when the airplane failed to recover from an otherwise normal spin. Younglove had broken his knee, but Kelley was all right.

    I was unable to find mention of this incident in Ottawa, Toronto or Montreal newspapers.
