Vietnam, US pilots ID needed - USMC / USN

Hiya,

Another research plea for info and pics of:

Major Vic Hobbs, USMC, believed he reached Lt.Col rank? Flew Intruders

Commander V.W Lydston, USN

Thanks for all your time and help.

Cheers

Danny

Danny,


Vernon Willis Lydston. Found his name as CO of UTRON 6 (Utility Squadron 6, later VC-6) at Norfolk, VA in the early 1960s.


Regards,


Leendert

Victor Hobbs (and his wife) gave oral interviews for a project done by Cal State at Fullerton. See pages 235 and 236 on this:
http://coph.fullerton.edu/collection...El%20Toro2.pdf

I don't know if the interviews or transcripts are on-line, but this seems to be the Project's website: http://coph.fullerton.edu/
