2451 Aircraft Control and Warning Unit
Ste. Anne de Bellevue, Quebec
It had been proposed in 1951, that a Reserve Aircraft Control & Warning Unit, to be designated as No. 2451 AC&WU, be formed at Ste. Anne de Bellevue, Quebec to have an AC&W presence in the West Island area of Montreal. 2451 AC&WU was to have formed around the personnel of the 1 Radar and Communications Unit Detachment at Ste. Anne De Bellevue. The unit did, in fact, form, at least on paper, on 15 April 1951 but as there was severe difficulty in getting personnel recruited and employed, it was decided that the Unit would be officially disbanded as of 1 August 1951. Since the unit was more or less "stillborn" the unit number, 2451, was reserved for use in the future.
