The photos on this page are from the collection of Matt Wick. Matt was assigned to VR-24 in Port Lyautey during the period 1957 to 1959. His photos include good shots of aircraft in maintenance and sites around the base and town of Kenitra/Port Lyautey.


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.

Three off-duty squadron members ham it up outside the barracks at Port Lyautey. Information on the names of these individuals would be helpful.

A prominent landscape feature in the French area of the base at Port Lyautey, this water tower was built before the U.S. Navy became tenants in the late 1940s.

One of the early structures, and one of the nicest, built by the Seabeas was the Base Chapel.

Contrary to previous reports, this is a Catholic church, one of the few in Port Lyautey. Recent reports indicate that this church is no longer standing.

It is unlikely that very many VR-24 members found their way to this location, a local winery in Port Lyautey. Most were more interested in the consumption side of the wine industry rather than the production side.
