Training For Freedom

Creator(s): Commonwealth Air Training Plan Museum

This Community Memories exhibit focuses on the personal histories of the men and women who participated in the British Commonwealth Air Training Plan (BCATP) during Second World War in Manitoba. The Commonwealth Air Training Plan came to life in 1939 to school air and ground crew personnel at bases that were built in Brandon, Virden, Neepawa, Rivers, Carberry and Dauphin. It was a life-altering event for these communities in Southwestern Manitoba, for the recruits and for future generations.
