Some Members of VC-6

Mid-1952 to January 1955

William F. "Bill" Swegle,, who was an Ensign and Lieutenant, j.g., in VC-6 during the period from mid-1952 to January 1955 sent to me 23 January 2004 a partial list of personnel in VC-6 during the time that he was in the squadron. Bill said:
These are names I copied from TAD orders or other documents, or recalled from memory. Many of the documents were carbon copies and difficult to read. Accordingly there may be a few misinterpreted letters in some names. After 50 years there may also be some errors due to my declining memory, especially as to individual assignments.

On November 20, 2004, I received a telephone call from E. Ensworth, who left the Navy in 1952. He had joined VC-5 at Moffett after he left boot camp and then had been a plankowner in VC-6. He moved with VC-6 to Pax and then to Pt. Lyautey. He will be e-mailing me a list of names of additional personnel, and he will be mailing to me some VC-6 photos.

He was a friend of Roy Williams.
