Re: Sheldon Sutton and the Consolidated PB4Y

Regarding CBI kills, it seems to me that classification is done according to the hierarchic command of the unit rather than the location of the kill.

For example, the kills over Southern France are classified as ETO when scored by 8th AF and by MTO when scored by 12th and 15th AF.

As for PB4Y against the Japanese, as no PB4Y unit was based in CBI during the war, all are PTO kills (even if some were scored on Chinese coast).
