Royal Canadian Air Force Officer. A native of Carleton Place, Ontario, Breadner entered military service in 1915 with the Royal Naval Air Service. Shortly after the conclusion of World War One, he left the military until 1922, when he joined the Canadian Air Force. Upon the formation of the Royal Canadian Air Force in 1924, Breadner was one of the first to offer his services and was assigned as commander of Camp Borden, the RCAF training camp. In 1928, he was appointed Director of the RCAF, serving until 1932. In 1940, now Air Commodore Breadner was appointed Chief of the Air Staff. In 1943, Air Marshal Breadner was re-assigned to the position of Commander-in-Chief of the RCAF overseas, a post he held until his retirement at the rank of Air Chief Marshal in 1945, the only Canadian to ever be promoted to such rank. (bio by: G.Photographer)
