Grumman Avenger overboard from RN Carrier

Grumman Avenger overboard from RN Carrier

Here we see the tail of a Grumman Avenger that has fallen overboard from a British aircraft carrier. The fate of the crew isn't recorded on the picture.

Many thanks to David Horne for sending us these pictures, which came from the collection of his father, Peter Horne, who served with the Fleet Air Arm from 1942 to 1946.
