Hello, I'm search Royal Canadian Air Force squadron codes during WW2, but I didn't find anything on the internet.
Please help me!

I found information about the squadron's codes only since 1947.

Thank you!

Mixed in with RAF and other Commonwealth squadrons are RCAF squadrons.

Possibly worth mentioning, about 60% of RCAF Bomber Command aircrew were assigned to RAF squadrons.

Great. You asked about WW2. Didn't mention specific to Canada only, and not overseas. So, I thought it perhaps worth mentioning.

Good luck with your research!

You are welcome.  :)

No, I just did a lot of research on an uncle who was in the RCAF Bomber Command ( aircrew ) in Europe during the war.
