R.C.A.F. Units Are Renumbered
As one of the first steps towards realization of this plan for distinctively Canadian units, a special series of numbers was allotted to the existing R.C.A.F. squadrons and those projected. The R.C.A.F.'s numbers were to be from 400 to 448. Thus, on March 1st, 1941, 110 Squadron became 400 R.C.A.F. Squadron; No. 1 Fighter Squadron and the original 112 Army Co-operation Squadron, which since December 9th, 1940, had been known as No. 2 Fighter Squadron, were also given new numbers.
