Re: Lt GC Duncan OS2U kill?

In Barrett Tillman's book on Navy Fighter Squadrons he has a list at the back showing Duncan as the 12th highest scoring ace, with 13.5 confirmed claims. This was his F6F score as listed in the VF15 official squadron history and so any claim while flying the OS2U in 1943 has obviously not been included. Perhaps it was only a probable or possible?

In Gerard Moran's book on Vought aircraft he mentions only two kills by OS2Us, both of Zekes at Iwo in 1945. One was by Gandy, the other by Arthur Hickman, the rearseatman of Lt. R. Hendershott.
