    Default Complete 31 SFTS (Kingston, Ont) ORB online FOC & no watermarks

    I've not seen this site before. Are others aware of it?

    https://heritage.canadiana.ca/view/o...353/12?r=0&s=1

    I've not dug any deeper yet to see if there are other ORBs, but it was a pleasant find that's helped me establish two postings for a man about whom I knew very little.

    It's extremely useful, and does indeed lots of other R.C.A.F. unit records:

    It has been mentioned on here before, and there's even an index been posted:

    Thats an amzing effort they are making there!

    Note that you can use google to search within the PDF for terms using the format

    R210619 site:airmuseum.ca/BCATPsearch/

    The example gives you an airman with that serial number, its worth noting you find him if you leave in or out the R since the . or / between letter and number gets ignored
    R210619 site:airmuseum.ca/BCATPsearch/
    R/210619 site:airmuseum.ca/BCATPsearch/
    210619 site:airmuseum.ca/BCATPsearch/

    All find the same result. Handy

    All find that man entry (if he is mentioned, and many, many 1000's are not.
