List of Flyers at Toronto Reunion in 1970: Part 1 of 2

A First World War Flyer

An Unknown Flyer During the First World War

Last year I was given an autographed menu from the 52nd Anniversary dinner celebrating the creation of the Royal Air Force (R.A.F.). The event, part of the National Pioneers of Aerial Warfare Reunion, was held in Toronto on April 17, 1970 and was attended by former First World War flyers from across Canada and the United States. If I had a time machine this is one event I wouldn’t miss, one can only imagine the ripping yarns that were retold over dinner that night!

Included with the menu was a directory of names and addresses of more than 700 individuals. It’s an interesting list and so I’ve digitized and transcribed the names in the hopes that it may be of use to those of you researching First World War flyers. Although OCR software is helpful it’s still taken many hours to prepare and so I’m publishing the list in two parts. I’ll publish a spreadsheet of the complete list when I post Part 2.

I’ve included scans of the original pages at the bottom of the article. My transcribed table of information omits the street address (see the scans for that information) but I’ve added a column for Victories. I’ve used this resource for these numbers although I’m aware there are other lists that include destruction of observation balloons and aircraft destroyed on the ground in their totals.

Those who originally compiled the list were careful to note that it contained “Known” names and addresses as of March 1970. I can verify that it is not complete because my cousin twice-removed, Capt. Gerald Gordon Bell (R.F.C. 22, 47 & 150 Squadrons, 16 Victories), is not listed although he was alive and living in Ottawa at the time. Bell died in October 1970.

In 1970 all of the men on this list would be well into their 70’s and 80’s. These “known” survivors of the Great War were credited with a total of 240 Victories. There are some names to be reckoned with however the one that stands out to me is Raymond Collishaw, a Nanaimo boy, whose amazing service record is largely unknown to most Canadians. Collishaw was overshadowed by William (Billy) Bishop but some feel that he would have received more attention and have been credited with more victories had he flown in the Royal Flying Corps (R.F.C.) and not the Royal Naval Air Service (R.N.A.S.).

If you find a mistake or typo please contact me or leave a comment below and I will update my list accordingly. Thanks in advance.

  1. Thanks for pointing out Raymond Collishaw. I had never heard of him. Seems like he should get more recognition, especially here on the Island!

    • You need to read the book “Black Flight” by Roger Gunn, it will give you all the information you need on him. My grandfather was a very good friend of his in WW1. As well, his name is missing from your list, Capt JLA Sinclair, check out the imperial war museum. My grandfather’s picture is in there as well, however, named incorrectly. I got a copy of the pictures from the Canadian archives and low and behold, it was my grandfather’s picture of them on the Niobe goving over to England. My grandfather was at some of the reunions. I have seen some pictures, I will have to look closely. My grandfather died in 1965.

      • Hi Ann,

        Thanks for your comments and the link to the great photograph of your grandfather. I’ve only published part 1 of the list and haven’t included surnames that begin with “S” yet. However it’s not meant to be a comprehensive list of every Canadian flyer, just those that were still members of the association as of March 1970. I double-checked the list and your grandfather’s name doesn’t appear due to his death in 1965. Thanks again for taking the time to leave a comment. Cheers, Steve.

    • In regards to Victories McCaffrey credits Collishaw with 70 although Collishaw himself claims 81. McCaffrey and others are adamant that he would have been credited with more had he flown with the RFC.

      • No, we do not want Paul Gross involved. I’m still not over his version of “Passchendaele”. The German-Canadian thread was intriguing but the “encounter” with the nurse at the front and the ridiculous crucifixion scene were pathetic attempts to bring Hollywood to the Western Front. As if the FWW didn’t have enough drama.
