    Default Canadian pilot training query

    Is anyone aware of where lists of those graduating from pilot training in Canada during WW2 may be found. I am interested in pilots trained at Moose Jaw graduating in May/June/July 1943

    Hi Tom,

    I am afraid that there is no one complete list.
    I remember they were ocassionaly cards for the graduation abll with the names of the new pilots on the back.
    Also in Canadian newspapers in 1940-41 there were sometimes listings of the graduates but I do not know if it was the same in later years.
    Do you have a particular names you are looking for?

    Hi again CZ,

    I do have a name I am looking for but I would like to follow up some other leads before I post any more details. Sorry to be a bit obtuse but I do not want to rock the boat any more than I have to at this point! Would any of the Canadian papers which gave lists have an archive I could access?
