He was told that the RCAF had too many navigators and was reassigned as a radar operator instead. He was sent to the Agricultural College in Guelph, Ontario where he was educated in electricty and radio. He was then sent to a Royal Air Force radar training school in Clinton, Ontario. Once graduated, Avrom was stationed overseas in England with the operational radar wing of the RAF, known as the 72 Wing.
