Research Request

I am currently researching Hugh Burns Hay. He was a highly decorated RCAF Navigator during the Second World War, having flown over 100 operations, first on the Lancaster, finishing up on the Mosquito.

After he was repatriated, he earned his pilot's wings. From there, he returned to medical school at the University of Western Ontario in London, then was posted to the Canadian Joint Staff (CJS) based out of London, England during the 1950s. In the 1960s, he was the head of the Institute of Aviation Medicine (IAM) in Toronto.

I continue to look for more information about Hay, the CJS and the IAM. If there is a CAHS member who knew Hay or worked as part of the CJS and/or IAM, I would appreciate hearing from them. My email address is

Thank you
