KARKLINS, JANIS




Note: There were two aviators named "Janis Karklins" in latvian aviation, both served at some point with the naval section, and it is likely that some of these biographical details are confused between the two of them. Note also that one of these men, I believe the one which first joined the naval squadron, had two crashes with Fiat CR.1 aircraft - one on November 8, 1928 and the other on June 12, 1931.
