The photos below are from the archives of former squadron member Tom Borbe. Tom was with VR-24 at Port Lyautey where most of these photos were taken. Other photos contributed by Tom are shown on Propwash Page Twenty-one, which addresses VR-24's participation in relief of victims of the Agadir earthquake in March 1961.


Anyone who has photos, stories, and material they wish to share is encouraged to send them to Dick Prather, Webmaster/Editor of the VR-24 website.

Bruce Dahlen relaxes in his space within the squadron barracks. We were all young once, but in this photo, Bruce looks like he might be too young to be in the Navy.

Located at the "busy" intersection near the base hangars, this may have been the only traffic light on the base. Difficult to see, but there is a VR-24 R5D barely visible behind the trees to the right.

This rare photo recalls the time in 1961 when VR-24 operated both R5Ds and R4Qs.
