Re: Pensacola training station 1938-41

May have found my answer! Apparently VN3-D8 was the scout bomber training squadron. In the period I need information (1938-39) it operated Vought Corsairs in various configurations and models (O3U/SU, and SBU). These aircraft seem to indicate the squadron was used to give further flight training to those who survived the elimination period, and then move them on to advanced/operational training?
