This Lysander is one of 225 Mk. IIIs built in Canada during 1942. It served with the RCAF as 2346, most probably as a target tug or communication aircraft. This example was discovered in a farmer's field in Edmonton, Alberta, during the early 1970s but has been beautifully restored and is now on display in RAF 138 Squadron markings. During WWII this squadron was based at Tempsford flying clandestine missions for the SOE supplying resistance forces and transporting agents to and from occupied Europe.
