May 30, 2019
Good day, my reading friend, and welcome to a special edition of our blog / bulletin / thingee. Three quarters of a century after the Normandy landings of June 1944, yours truly would like to highlight a somewhat forgotten aspect of the history of No. 425 Squadron (Alouette), Royal Canadian Air Force. Indeed, I intend to examine the 127-day period (1 May-5 September 1945) during which this famous unit received and used British-designed Avro Lancaster four engine heavy bombers made in Canada.
