A Question About RCN Aviation ranks 1945-1962

Unread postby E. Miller » Fri Jul 08, 2005 10:25 am

Hello
I am doing some research on the Canadian Navy. At the end of WW2 4 squadrons were transfered from the FAA to the RCN. I am curious as to whether or not the pilots retained the RCN rank system or adopted the RCAF system.

As far as I'm aware, one or two Royal Canadian Navy aircraft carriers were supplemented by RCAF aircraft and personnel until around 1950, in which the RCN staffed their own aircraft and flightdecks.

If you want to double check, these guys will be sure to know:

It helps some yes. However the setup is really confusing. If the aircraft were RCAF crewed were they only attached to the RCN?. If so then does that mean they stayed with their RCAF ranks?. I feel abit slow bugging everyone about this but there is no clear answer anywhere.

Nope, pers from the RCAF who flew with the RCN maintained their RCAF ranks as they went back. New RCN pers (or any who transferred into the RCN from the RCAF) adopted RCN ranks which were the same as RN ones (with a few new NCO ones that the RCN created overall.
