My grandfather is not on the 1840 squadron register
« on: 09 December 2023 06:51:12 pm »

Dear Reader,

I have recently come across some documents and photographs that belonged to my grandfather - Felix Nauta. I would like to share these photographs and also see if I could learn more about his campaign during the war. How do I go about doing this?
Most importantly I would like to have his name added to the list of pilots that flew in his Squadron - the 1840 squadron. I have his flight log book if this would be of interest.

See attached a picture of him with his squadron on the deck of the HMS Furious. Below he hand wrote the names of the men on the photo. I believed he added a cross to mark those who had not made it however his own name is marked so this cannot be as he did survive the war. I still need to have the original digitalised for better resolution.

Any help is much appreciated. Thank you in advance.

A Nauta.
