789 SQUADRON HERITAGE
789 opened up its doors in September 2012. Branching off of nearby Mississauga Squadrons, we were off to a strong start.
The Squadron is named after Military Officer Lt R Hampton Gray, who was the last Canadian to be awarded the Victoria Cross Medal. He fought courageously for 5 years in many well-known wars such as WWII, The Battle of the Atlantic, The Pacific War, and many more.
We are proud to know and still have a strong relationship with Lt Gray's niece, who has attended a few of our Annual Ceremonial Reviews.
