Some notes about Canadian Armed Forces Dakotas:

Officially, CAF Dakotas did not use any variant designators.  Unofficially, squadron records and log books sometimes referred to individual aircraft with the old RCAF style mark  numbers (3F, 3R, etc.).    These are tracked in my database, and I have added them to the latest revision of this web page.

It appears that some CAF Dakotas were marked with a 5 digit number, based on the Douglas company number, shortly after unification.  For example, I have photographic evidence of one Dakota marked 12595.  Baugher reports several other examples, including 14995.  It also appears that the "last three" were marked on the nose.  I'm not sure if these were actual serial numbers, or some other type of marking.  If anybody out there can enlighten me, please do so!
