  Armed Forces
The Royal Canadian Air Force was formed on 1 April 1924, and lost its distinct identity with the unification of the Canadian Armed Forces in 1968.
In 1923 the CAF was designated "Royal," and on 1 April 1924, when the King's Regulations and Orders for the Royal Canadian Air Force came into effect, it adopted the RAF ensign, motto, UNIFORMS and rank structure, and even the same official birthdate.
Canadians were involved from the start, but the first Canadian unit was 405 Squadron, which was operational in mid-1941 and was part of the elite Pathfinder group.

 Reorganization of the Canadian Armed Forces
Even before completion of the integration of the Canadian Forces Headquarters, which began on 1 August 1964, the planning for the second major phase in the integration process, the creation of an integrated command structure for the field forces, was begun.
In the popular mind, the first two phases, the establishment of an integrated Canadian Forces Headquarters and the functional commands, constituted integration, whereas the third, unification, is often regarded as a separate and distinct phase.
Whether the Canadian plan serves as an example for any other nation in the integration or unification of its forces must depend on the size of its forces and their roles, on the economic and political necessity, and on the many factors which affect a nation’s capability to accept such radical reorganization.
