    Hi All,

    I wonder if anyone can help,

    I'm going though my Grandads Flight Log books, He started his training in Canada (Assiniboia, Sask) and in many of the entries the are only codes, EG, 10.A.B.C, 6, 7, 8, 9, 15, 16 and so on...

    Anyone have a decription for each item...

    Many Thanks

    Hi Teagie,

    I can't help you but #24 EFTS (Jan 30 1944 - July 28 1944) and # 34 EFTS (Feb 11 1942 - Jan 30 1944 ) of #4 Training Command was at Assiniboia.

    Can you scan and post a page from the log book?
