    Default Canadian Awards Website

    I am perhaps announcing this a tad on the early side, but I have been given a means to edit/revise/update/expand entries on the Canadian awards website. Unhappily it is a slow process. Access to revisions is also a rather cumbersome process - what I describe as a steam-powered mousetrap.

    If you visit the main RCAF site (http://airforce.ca/honours-awards/military-honours-awards-1914-1945-files/rcaf-personnel-1939-1949/) you will find little has changed. However, if you go to the Air Force Association of Canada website (awards portion) you can access revisions thusly:

    Click on SEARCH TOOLS

    Enter a name you seek AND check off the appropriate group (at this tiime, RCAF awards)
    and you will find the newer revisions.

    I have, to date, revised only about two percent of the Second World War RCAF entries (I estimate about 300 hours to complete the task - i.e. several months) and so far the revisions have not run past the name "Ashlin". Some revisions are quite minor - but for an idea of what I hope to achieve, compare the old entry for William Franklin ASH (as found via http://airforce.ca/honours-awards/military-honours-awards-1914-1945-files/rcaf-personnel-1939-1949/ with the new entry (as found using SEARCH TOOLs). Another example (an early test in the project) would be a comparison of the old and new entries for Gordon DIAMOND.

    The RCAF awards data base (Second World War) as viewed using the "Search Tools" option has now been amended to "BODNOFF". Persons comparing entries between this option and the (so-far unamended) main Air Force Association website may find that most changes have been relatively minor (perhaps no more than a few expanded details of postings within Canada) but some are quite extensive.
