Not really sure if I am any more adept than others in the research department, however, one thing that I have done over the years is to have collected every little bit of information on the squadrons and pilots from the era that I could get my hands on. I have many official Sqn History books with lists of all sqn personnel, course photos from the OTUs, books written by others on the different aircraft, the bases and the squadrons. I also have a network of others who enjoy this period in aviation history and whose knowledge I can pick from time to time. Unfortunately, a lot of the guys who flew these jets are now in their 70s and 80s so I also do my best to get them to talk and to write things down before it all becomes lost in the not-to-distant future.
I think your observation about fewer post-war pilots than those involved in WW2 and the fact that quite a few of them are still living today certainly helps a lot. One of my "go to" guys for information is the fellow who was instrumental in starting the RCAF Memorial Museum (now the National Air Force Museum) here in the Trenton area. He is a wealth of knowledge.
A book is definitely in the works, but the time needed to dedicate to such a project is simply not available to me yet. Some day.
And yes, I will post more of my collection as time goes by. Thanks for the comments.
