VF-49 August 15, 1945

VF-49 claimed seven A6M5s west of Mito. Does anyone know which pilots made claims and whether VF-49 made any other claims in WW2?

Also LtCdr Herman J. Trum was XO of VF-49 from November 1944. Was he still with the squadron?

Trum later led a Corsair squadron in Korea and went on to become an Admiral.
