 Category C damage on 8 April 1941, while with No. 6 Service Flying Training School (SFTS) at Dunville, Ontario. Converted to Mk. IIA armament trainer on 29 August 1950. Temporary loan to RCN 29 August 1950, carried RCAF serial number plus penant number. Operated by No. 1 Training Air Group (1 TAG) at the Naval Air Station, HMCS Shearwater. Changed to indefinite loan to the RCN on 18 December 1953. Transferred from Shearwater to VC 924, the naval air reserve squadron that formed in Calgary on 1 June 1954. It is unclear what happened to 2777 after it was struck off in 1960. However, it was eventually rescued from long term storage in a deteriorated condition and with parts from other Harvards was refurbished as a VC 924 squadron Harvard with "930 - NAVY" markings. For many years was a "Gate Guardian" at the entrance to Shearwater. The aircraft again deteriorated out of doors in the maritime climate and in 2003 was brought indoors and given a new yellow paint job with "930 - NAVY" markings for display inside the Shearwater Aviation Museum where it stands today.
