    Default P G McHardy RCAF Officer WW2 Peter Gordon McHardy?

    Since the loss of the Canada Gazette in an really useable form I am trying to identify a RCAF Officer in WW2

    He is P G McHardy and I am 99% sure that he is Peter Gordon McHardy born circa 1914 in England and died in 1995 in Canada - but cannot link them 100% nor can I find his service number

    A P G McHardy later worked post war in a number of Canadian aeronautical concerns including Spartan Air Services (where he was Treasurer: "Peter G McHardy") and also Air Transport Canada and maybe Canadian representative to International Civil Aviation Organisation - He appears to work mostly in finance and Peter G McHardy was a qualified Accountant

    He pops up in October 12, 1940 article in Edmonton Journal as attending a RCAF class in Meteorology in Winnipeg I believe as an RCAF Officer

    Thanks Paul

    Hi Paul. The only PG McHardy listed as an Officer in the RCAF Airforce list is PG. McHardy J-3768. His trade is listed as AO or Air Observer.
    Hope this helps.

    Bingo helps a lot and confirms my ID - I could use the J-3768 hook to get into Canada Gazette and then saw a preview and had download to find actual reference:-( but found it. Thanks again
