Re: F/Sgt Charles McCormac's rescue by RAAF Catalina 16/9/42

Just a few snippets to map out Do-24 X-24's timeline.


A couple of extracts from Tom Womack's book: "The Dutch Naval Air Force Against Japan", indicating X-24s departure from NEI and arrival in Australia.


The front sheet of the RAAF Aircraft Card for Do24 A49-6 (ex-X-24) indicating the initial transfer to the RAAF, and the subsequent secondment to the Dutch Government for secret flights.
