Re: VB-18 aerial claims

A belated and partial response:

In an attack on Tansui A/F near Kiirun, Formosa, on 12 October the bombers were attacked by several twin engine fighters. Three were claimed as shot down:

C.S. Draper Nick
F.E. Schumacher Irving
B.B. Duncan Nick

All three were Lt(jg)s.

The Linn (Zeke) and Namoski (Tojo) claims were made on 29 October during an attack on Clark Field.

You mention a claim on 31 October. This is unlikely as Intrepid was fuelling that day.
