Since its birth during World War II, Tusker Squadron has served Canada with pride and distinction. From Ceylon to the Arctic, Europe to the Maritimes, it has watched over the waves for more than fifty years.
The men and women of 413 Squadron have dedicated their lives to saving others, including F/L L.J. Birchall – the Saviour of Ceylon – who successfully warned the Allies of the Japanese invasion before being captured. They have patrolled the Indian Ocean, mapped Canada s North, fought in two wars and conducted all-weather interception. Today, they continue to serve faithfully by carrying out invaluable search and rescue duties along the Atlantic and eastern Arctic coasts.
This is their story, brought to life through numerous archival photos and the words of those who served.
