Calgary was the headquarters to No 13 Military District during the First World War, and the city had four military hospitals with 918 beds. During the Second World War, a small arms training centre, an infantry training centre and a service flying training school were set up at Calgary, the latter under the British and Commonwealth Air Training Plan. There was also an elementary flying training school at De Winton, a few miles south of the city. The Calgary Royal Air Force stations were at Lincoln Park and McCall Field.
