Re: Aircraft on cruiser Fiji
Waters is the reason for the dispute.
It may be worth trying to contact Conrad Waters, the author of the book "British Town Class Cruiser", who is in the process of writing a book on the Colony Class.
There is a small dispute in progress as to whether the ship actually embarked an aircraft at any time in 1940.
Does anybody know the answer.
I am aware that Fiji ran sea trials in April 1940 without the catapult.
