HMS Ocean and Hellcat of 892 Squadron, FAA (2 of 2)

This picture shows part of the flight deck of the Colossus class light fleet carrier HMS Ocean, with the Hunt class destroyer HMS Meynell acting as a crash ship. The aircraft on deck is a Hellcat of No.892 Squadron, Fleet Air Arm. The picture was taken in the Mediterranean in 1946.

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.
