I want to ask anyone who served in the Hurricane Hunters from 1946 to 1950 if they remember the use of women's names for hurricanes during operations as opposed to the use of the phonetic alphabet designations during this period. All the official documents refer to hurricanes Able, Baker, Charlie, ... etc but I have seen casual mentions of the use of names such as Emma and Bess for hurricanes and I am trying to ascertain if there was an unofficial list of women's name such as was used in the Pacific. Thanks for your help.
