Cyril's Family is working on his biography (2001). Hopefully, with some stories about those early post WWII days of flying the Pacific with CNAC.

"Pinky" came from the Army Air Corps. I do believe he flew in B-17's over Germany prior to coming to the Pacific Theater. He remained in China. After CNAC folded in Hong Kong, he went to work for Air America.
