    I had an uncle that served in the Royal Navy. He was a navigator/bombardier aka observer on first, a Fairey Barracuda, and later, a Grumman Avenger.

    Anyone else have relatives who served in the Fleet Air Arm?

    Arthur Hemington of the HMS Indefatigable was shot down and killed during his first combat mission with the British Pacific Fleet – Operation Meridian.
