Recruitment Poster for Aerial Warriors
Although not officially sanctioned by the Dominion Government, recruitment for the Imperial Royal Flying Corps began in Canada during 1915. The Royal Flying Corps offered an alluring alternative to the traditional forms of warfare. Up to the War, those who mastered the new technology of the airplane were perceived as being young, daring and fearless. These were exactly the type of men, aged 18 to 30, that the RFC wanted to build their corps of aerial warriors.
