HMS Ocean and Hellcat of 892 Squadron, FAA (1 of 2)

Here we see a Hellcat of No.892 Squadron, Fleet Air Arm, on the deck of the Colossus class light fleet carrier HMS Ocean. In the background is the Hunt class destroyer HMS Meynell, which was serving as a crash ship. 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.
