NOTE ON CORNELL COMPANY NUMBERS:
The records of company numbers for the early Canadian built Cornells are incomplete, and sometimes contradictory.  The information below has mostly come from research done by Air Britain members, and was kindly provided by Tony Broadhurst in the UK.  Company numbers with an "A" or "M" prefix come from postwar civil registers, and are probably major component serial numbers (wings, fuselages, etc.) that have beden misread as complete aircraft numbers.  As always, I would welcome any corrections or additional information you may have.
