Thank you so much Simon Butterworth - whow - could have been used during the war. And it is not as I thought Fleet Air Arm, but rather Royal Navy. I appreciate it. Will keep it for sure.

There were of course Fleet Air Arm units in South Africa during WWII especially at Wingfield in the Cape as well as at Durban I believe.
