Canada’s Naval Aviators (The Nominal List)

This is the list of 2,177 naval aviators who served in the Canadian Navy, or who were Canadians serving as naval aviators in other navies. It is derived from the two versions of the printed book of the same name by the authors which were produced for the Maritime Museum of British Columbia and The Shearwater Naval Museum. The books are no longer in print, and now this list is much more extensive than those contained in the two printed editions - and a great many of the entries have been brought up to date and corrected.

2186 matches. 44 pages. Max 50 records per page.
