I can’t see the picture that you’re talking about. My husband flew Gannets,, although not in 1960, he was later than that, he even occasionally flew the COD when they were at sea.
Dartman surely that was the point of an aircraft carrier, being a mobile airfield and getting aircraft airborne? Why did that offend you so much ?

It may have been the reason Titch , but one felt like a hotel employee for the sqaudrons beck and call, apart from that appearing in only large city ports with 2000 crew plus the crews fom supporting escorts meant the choice of girls was more restricted due to competition, whereas on a submarine you were actually doing something worthwhile, when visiting ports there was only 100 or so of you and the locals treated you with some awe. :D :D
