Sub-Lieutenant Harold West, Fleet Air Arm.  Flew fighters from HMS Victorious in 1944-45 (possibly 1834, 1836-38 Squadrons).  Any information on him and operations he participated in would be appreciated.
Any input on sources for research would also be received with thanks.  A check of the catalog suggests that the National Archives (Kew) only holds the ORB of 1837 Squadron for that time period.  Would anyone know of any other sources (I know the FAA Museum holds some ORBs)?
Thanks
