May 2002 - I found Dad's Naval Certificate of Service + a lot of photos. He was in 821 Naval Air Squadron, Fleet Air Arm, and served on "H.M.S. Puncher" & "H.M.S. Trumpeter". My father is Frank CAWTHORN [his nickname was "Curls"] He was just 18 years and 4months old when he volunteered for the Navy in June 1942.
