The historic deed done by the British enthusiasts with regard to the Royal Navy and its aircraft/units is simply fantastic

Re: HMS Theseus: Sea Otter/s

Lee,

No, I haven't. Simply can't afford every book that's out there! And post WW2 FAA a/c is not a particular interest for me, just wanted those details that Col kindly provided.

Cheers,

Bruce
