440 Squadron

F/L Donald Barbour of Limerick, Saskatchewan, led the City of Ottawa Squadron on an attack February 16, 1945. From an RCAF Press Release: "Three squadrons of Typhoons this afternoon rained 24 tons of bombs upon an enemy V-bomb launching site cleverly concealed among factory buildings 15 miles south of Rotterdam. Two other sections scored eight cuts in the enemy's Ruhr railways at the same time. 'The attack was rather impressive,' said Barbour, 'all the Typhoons in line astern, just one big string of aircraft diving and pulling up like a Ferris wheel.'"
