Re: Lt GC Duncan OS2U kill?

Superb George! The Cleaver boo does contradict the "kill" claim later by describing Duncan's claim for a kill on June15, 1944 as his first kill.

Reading further I find the book also contradicts the VF-15 war history about the types of Japanese aircraft claimed by Duncan. Several of his "Zeke" claims become "Oscars" ( a very plausible assumption) and another is a "Judy". His claim for "Betty" bombers are actually "Sally" bombers, again a plausible assumption given that in most of these actions VF-15 is attacking JAAF airbases.
