The men listed here were essential to the very existence of the Air OP and the fulfillment of its role.
These men came from among the best of the Army (RCHA, RCA, RCASC, and RCEME) and the RCAF, with every rank: W01, MWO, W02, S/Sgt, F/Sgt, WO, Sgt, Bdr, Cpl, L/Bdr, L/Cpl, LAC, AC1,
Cfn, Gnr and Pte. Some came from the RCN just before the Air OP was folded. Their trades were: Aero Engine Technician, Air Frame Technician, Aviation Technician,
Clerk, Cook, Driver, Driver Operator, Instrument Technician, Observer, Photo Technician, Radio Operator, Radio Technician, Storeman Clerk, Technical Assistant and Vehicle Mechanic.
Their willingness to pitch-in well beyond their trade responsibilities was what made the whole thing work.
