B.S.T.U. Flight (Bomber Support Training Unit) from 22 October 1944 to 1 November 1944 when he was teamed up with Eugene Gagnon. They were with this unit until when they joined 23 Squadron. 

There then obviously followed some more training as he spent some more time in Avro Ansons.

Next time Eugene Gagnon and R.C. Harris fly their first mission together…
