    Default 6 SFTS, Dunnville, Ont., 1941

    Can anyone tell me the course number and commecement date of the intake at 6 SFTS, Dunnville, Ont., that graduated on 30 Oct 1941? I believe Robert G. Kleimeyer was commissioned Plt Off on graduation from this course.

    Additionally, does anyone know when the class arrived at Halifax (Y Depot?) and when they shipped to the UK, arrived in the UK, and with which troopship they travelled?

    Thanks

    Steve,

    Working from notes for my 'For Your Tomorrow' volumes and a check of the NZ Gazette, Kleimeyer's postings were:

    emb 'Dominion Monarch at Auckland for Canada 22 Jul 41,
    arrvied Halifax and att RCAF 16 Aug 41,
    6SFTS 18 Aug 41,
    Pilot Badge & Sgt/Commissioned 7 Nov 41,
    [Interestingly, one of my FYT men graduated on this course on 31 Oct and none on 30th, but all 26 others graduated on 7 Nov]

    then most likely:
    1 Y Depot 12 Nov 41,
    emb for UK & att RAF 14 Nov 41,
    3PRC c.1 Dec 41,
