Is is a real pleasure to hear from you. Many thanks for contacting me. Via the fabulous VP Navy website I have contacted some other VP-45 crew but I don't think many go back as far as you! Patrick Imhof was VP-45 aircrew and Al Quack was an engineer. Andy Sinclair was on PBMs in Bermuda in 1948/49 and still lives in Bermuda.
My book is in final editing and will be published by the Bermuda National Museum to celebrate 100 years of aviation in Bermuda.
I would like to contact you by email, can you send me your email address please? I have some questions to ask. I would like to send you some of my writing so you can comment/correct it.
