    This information is flat out wrong.

    The following sworn testimony before The Hart Inquiry (a US Navy investigatory committee relating to the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor) by William E. G. Taylor contains information on his military career with the US Navy and USMC as a naval aviator and carrier pilot serving on the carrier Lexington. Taylor testified that in August, 1939, he resigned his commission and sailed to England to join the RAF, but as war had not yet been declared, the RAF declined his services, and Taylor joined the Royal Navy as a pilot in the FAA instead.

    After serving in the Royal Navy on active duty as a fighter pilot, Taylor was transferred to the RAF to command 71 Eagle Squadron in October, 1940. In July of 1941, after serving actively with 71 Eagle Squadron for seven months, Taylor was to be promoted to Wing Commander and put in charge of a training unit. It was his wish however, to remain with his squadron. As the US Naval Air attache in London had been asking for his return for service in the US Navy, Taylor opted to return to United States service and was re-commissioned in the USN. He was advising the US Army on setting up an air defense direction system in Hawaii when Pearl Harbor was attacked.

    A relatively new book (2004) The Threadbare Buzzard, by Thomas M. Tomlinson a Montana Rancher who joined the Canadian Air Force in 1939. After Pear Harbor he sought service with a US force and instead of Army or Navy he choose the Marines
    He relates great incite into early war time preparation and deployment. He served with the original VMF 214 flying Wildcats from Guadalcanal then later transitioning to Corsairs. He is critical of Boynton’s 214 and very critical of how the Navy treated Marine pilots
