Witold. Do you mean the carrier's individual Air Groups ? These show the assignments by year and theatre.
Regards
Nick

Re: USS Essex's VP-15 second Division during Raid I

Hi everybody
Thanks for this conrtibution
I tought about a kind of combat action reports of Carrier Air Group Commanders where were specified times of take off by Divisions, names of pilots in Divisions, etc. Something like that I've found on one site about Battle of Midway.
