Grumman TBF Tarpon: Gremlin’s sheer joy.

Mischievous portrait taken at Quonset Point, RI. It was there where “Senior Service” crews became acquainted with the superb Tarpon… later known by its real name, the Avenger torpedo bomber.
Not an uniform type, but this smiling Fleet Air Arm subject seems to wear a very “US Navy summer unifom” to me. The headgear is 100% US Navy; canvas summer flight helmet (a M450, methinks) and the ubiquitous AN-6510 goggles.
