Re: Pensacola training station 1938-41

Thanks very much. This is excellent!

I am a Scot and the USN is not seen this side of the pond too often. ES McCuskey, my subject was USNR who trained in 1938-39.

I had assumed the designations were from individual specialities. Does this mean that the Elimination period did not include a period on the N3N, or that the period in elimination at Fairfax Field was flown in another aircraft?

Over here the Fleet Air Arm did the same thing, but when I have read the British pilots training in WW2 there's a definite initial period on the N3N,

If so these USNR pilots completed the three courses in less than twelve months? At the end of this were they assigned based on their level of competence/aptitude?
