Fairey Battle

Ron Page and William Cumming, Fleet, The Flying Years. Boston Mills Press, 1990
A Fairey Battle in target-towing colours at rest at the Toronto Island Airport. 
Fleet Aircraft of Fort Erie got a contract to repair these airplanes during WW2. The badly damaged aircraft were sent over from England in large crates. The repaired planes must have then been used for training purposes in Canada, as they were obsolete even by the beginning of the war.
