He joined 403 (RCAF) Squadron on 7th October 1943. Lindsay was posted away from 403 for a while but rejoined the Squadron at Eindhoven in April 1944: shortly afterwards he became a Flight Commander and on the 7th May he shot down a Bf109 and damaged an Fw190. Another Fw190 fell to his guns on the 19th as well as on the 26th June. His most notable action occurred on the 2nd July when Lindsay shot down no less than 3 Bf109s in ONE MINUTE! For this he was awarded a DFC. On the 2nd August he "bagged" another Bf109. Lindsay's tour then ended but he again returned to 403 Squadron on the 2nd April 1945 and on the 17th probably destroyed an Fw190. Lindsay also flew with 416 Squadron from late April to mid-July. His score at the conclusion of the war was 7 aircraft confirmed destroyed. He stayed in the RCAF and in 1952 with the rank of Squadron Leader he served with the USAF in Korea on an exchange posting and flying F-86s (Sabres) with the 39th Squadron of the 51st Fighter Wing shot down MiG 15s on the 11th October and 26th November 1952. He also damaged 3 others.
