I just noticed and don't know why I declined your suggestion for his birthplace. I will have to ask his son as well as check the records. I think "Scott" was the home in the head of his Lucky Bag bio. I will try Ancestry, too.

Jack Derthick
Thanks for the memorial for Jack Derthick of Alpena. He was a favorite almost-relative (his mother married my uncle, second marriage for each) way way long ago. We loved hearing his stories of his childhood and the Navy.

ctommelins and souceks
I see that you have recognized the Crommelins among your prewar aviators on their memorials, but not yet the Souceks. Both are great names in USNA history and Naval Aviation. Five Crommelin brothers four of whom were fighter pilots, and four Souceks, two brothers and one cousin test pilots, The other Crommelin brother and another Soucek cousin were surface admirals. All the Souceks were football and lacrosse (almost natural for Oklahomans then) greats.

I guess I had Dewitt confused with someone else when I said to you that the SSDI was in Marion Co., Florida. It must have been a late night when I did that. So Sorry.

Pattie

PS are you related??

Hi Mike

Ok I found the Florida State Death Index and have copied and pasted it to his memorial. The county of Dade is not an option for Florida on Find A Grave. Hmm I wonder why.. Check out his memorial and let me know.

This is my Dad, with the Fighting One Squadron Photo. Many of the pilots' names probably will fit your special interest. Forrest Sherman is not in the photo. I think he was CO later. I think Apollo Soucek, about the middle of the row of pilots, was XO and perhaps acting CO as he is not named as a CO in the pretty good Top Hats history available at Amazon. Ehen Dad and I visited the Naval Aviation display at ths Mal A&S Museum, Dad looked up at the F4B in Top Hats CO's livery (engine cowling completely painted in squadron color, red), he said "Yep, that's Forrest Sherman's plane."Squadron colors today still match those of the 30's which matched hull numbers then. On my Med deplyment in 1957, VF-31 was red, VT-32 was yellow, VA-34 was blue and VA-35, my son was in VA-195, which was also green.

Thanks for the tip on William A Brownie. I missed him when I was going through the class necrology to ctreate my "1953 Classmates" virtual cemetery. Wendell G Switzer, Jr. was one of my plebe summer roommates and was one of that first batch, but I did not get around to posting his Lucky Bag photo until yesterday. I was struck by how you created memorials for practically his entire family.
