  1. Pierre,

    I wonder if you can help me. I am researching a friend’s grandfather who died in a Hampden on January 11th 1943. He joined the RAF(VR) as a Sergeant but in 1942 he was given a commission and was sent to Canada for training as a navigator. His name is William John Rees and his service number is 123457. I was wondering if you would have any details of where he trained in Canada?

    I would appreciate any help mate.

      It’s a long shot but who knows.
      What do you think Deanna?


  2. Thanks Pierre. I realize it is a longshot, but I figured that it was either that or not bothering at all. I appreciate your help. If you are unable to save the photo from the link, let me know and I can email you a jpg. Thanks again, Deanna

  3. Hello

    Pierre. I just came across these superb photos of Uplands and the instructors at No. 2 SFTS. Absolutely excellent. Would you allow me to build a story around these photos and publish a piece about Uplands? I did one way back when, but these really are outstanding images and I would like to share them with my readers around the world.

    Here’s the old story from 6 years ago

  4. Hello,
    my name is Kire Paputts. I’m a Toronto film producer who is currently working on a documentary called Fledglings about WW2 RCAF squadron 425. Our editor came across your website and liked a lot of the photos. We’d like to use one in the film and were wondering if you could let us know where it’s from or who owns the copyright? If you know that. The photo in question came from this post.
    ​If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact me. Any help is greatly appreciated.
    Thanks in advance,
