RAF 66 Squadron (source Internet)

Gordon Apps was Officer Commanding of “G” Flight. His life story is on Wikipedia if you want to read it.


In the meantime, Apps applied to the Royal Canadian Air Force. He joined his old commander “Billy” Barker in the new air force on 19 March 1924. After a round of assignments to Winnipeg, Victoria Beach, Barrie, and Norway House, he was posted to an aerial survey project in 1926, tasked to photograph 25,000 square miles (65,000 km2) in the Red Lake District.[1]

Clarence sent me a link to RCAF records. G.F.M. Apps signed the “G” Flight 1927 report. 

I was able to take it from there.
