That's interesting, almost looks like a time-capsule.

That is a very cool item! Love it!

 

I have this negative...one of the survivors of the CA-44 gave me this along with another negative (of the SOCs he worked on aboard the Vincennes). The man who gave this to me was an aviation mechanic for the SOCs.

I do not profess to be a militaria expert, but I conduct as much research as I am capable of and then write about my findings.

Several of the PacFleet cruisers' SOCs were from Scouting Six.

Yeah , there hasn't been a book , at least that I've seen that lists all these types of aircraft and the crusiers/battleships they were assigned to , it would make a very interesting topic and book I'm sure a lot of Navy avaiation historians would enjoy !
