When WWII began there was a great need for trained aircrew to fight the enemy. A Plan, the British Commonwealth Air Training Plan, was created that built a massive system of air training facilities across Canada. As one part of this enormous plan Brantford, Ontario became an Air Station training bomber aircrews on the Avro Anson, called No. 5 Service Flying Training School. This book describes the exciting development, operation and end of the Station. It gives a small glimpse of what happened all across Canada as the Plan evolved and specifically the events in the City of Brantford.
