We don’t say enough about the Flight Instructors.

They played a big part in the BCATP. They stayed in Canada. Most of them would have like to be posted overseas where the action was. 

I wonder what happened to Flight Instructor J. H. Chandler.

Prior to being posted there, Walter Neil Dove was first stationed  at No. 14 S.F.T.S. Alymer, Ontario and after at No. 5 Belleville, Ontario.
