   Canadian airmen served in the British flying services during the Great War of 1914-1918 in surprisingly large numbers and in virtually every theatre of the war.
   Many of them entered service by volunteering for the Canadian Over-Seas Expeditionary Force. To do so, they were required to complete an Attestation Paper in which they declared an oath of allegiance to King George the Fifth and agreed to serve in any arm of the service for the duration of the war between Great Britain and Germany.
