The photos on this and the next several pages are from the collection of Ernie Gasaway who served with VR-24 as an Aviation Machinist Mate (AD) in Rota from December 1963 to August 1965. His photos depict the activities he availed himself of on the base at Rota and nearby towns, and some farther away, such as Seville and Gibraltar.
