    Default RCAF P-40 unit, Dartmouth, NS

    A photo recently came to hand that shows RCAF P-40s at Dartmouth which appear to have the unit code 'RE'. Can anyone please confirm the unit? Date would be late March 1943.
    Thanks and regards:
    Robert

    Found the answer: 118 Squadron.

    Rob, the RCAF officially stopped using two letter squadron codes in October 1942, although a few aircraft may have lingered on past that date. Also, 118 Squadron was with WAC, at Sea Island and in Alaska, from June 1942 until they went overseas in late 1943 (as 438 Squadron).

    Hi Bill:
    My mistake! The date was late March 1942.
    Cheers:
