Description: The Westland Lysander was a rugged, short-take-off-and-landing aircraft designed for low-level reconnaissance and artillery observation. Although it first flew in 1936, the design was largely obsolete when war broke out. Canadian license-built production of the Lysander II began in 1938 at Malton (today the site of Toronto's Pearson International Airport). The first Royal Canadian Air Force squadron sent to Britain in early 1940 was equipped with Lysander II's. The later-production Lysander IIIa seen in this photograph is in the collection of the Canadian Aviation Museum. The Lysander IIIa was used mainly as a target tugs for anti-aircraft artillery practice. (Canadian Department of National Defence, PCN-5244)

Description: The Vickers Vedette was the first commercial aircraft built to a Canadian specification for Canadian conditions. The Royal Canadian Air Force needed an aircraft for forestry survey and fire protection patrols, and Canadian Vickers of Montreal responded with the British-designed Vedette with some adjustments for Canada. The RCAF bought 44 aircraft, which entered service in 1925. They were widely used in Canada's wilderness for communications with isolated communities and for making the photographic surveys needed for the preparation of maps by the Geological Survey of Canada. A replica of a Vedette is on display at the Western Canada Aviation Museum. (Department of National Defence photo)

Description: The 20th century saw a change in US-Canada relations from animosity to cooperation. Before and at the start of the Second World War, both Canada and the US publicly declared their active opposition to any nation attacking the other. With the appearance of the Soviet airborne threat to the North American continent, both nations cooperated to create jointly manned radar networks (the DEW, Pinetree and Mid-Canada Lines).

Type: Document
Description: During the inter-war years of 1919-1939 the Canadian military experienced large-scale reorganization which included major diversification and expansion of communications capabilities. In many cases these capabilities would grow to serve civilian as well as military needs and would put the Royal Canadian Corps of Signals in the unique position of being the only branch of the Armed Forces that continued to expand during the Great Depression of the 1930s.

Description: For thirty five years the Royal Canadian Corps of Signals was a highly successful and profitable commercial operation serving the needs of Canadians in the far north. With the many services it had provided to the country the Corps was the only branch of the Armed Forces that expanded during the Great Depression of the 1930s. It was also the only military activity which provided the Canadian Government with a net profit.
