    Hi Gents,

    One J. A. Faulkner of Ottawa received his wings at No. 13 SFTS St. Hubert, Quebec in 1943. Hope it helps.

    Hi Phil,

    As matter of fact both were shot down and rescued from the sea near Den Helder at 10th April 1945. Is this also part of your research as I can perhaps add details about that incident.

    Kind regards,
    Hans

    Photos of both and other details in Peter Hall's Osprey book No 91 Nigeria Squadron.
