Stig,

All three aircraft were assigned as trainers to the Naval Air Station Pensacola.

OK George

Should I interpret your answer that US Navy at this time had no numbered training units and that Pensacola was their training facility?

Cheers
Stig

Stig,

There were numbered training squadrons, in the VN- range, at Pensacola but during this period the aircraft were assigned to the parent Naval Air Station, not the individual training units.

From about the mid-thirties the accident reports start to include the training squadron numbers.

Thanks George

I see, hmm
Admit I am terribly short on US Navy and USMC 'between the wars'.
Only book I have is 'Bill' Larkins US Navy 1921-41 combined with USMC 1914-59 and the training units is not the book's raison d'aitre...

Any internet site you can recommend or perhaps a book by yourself could solve my problem??...

Cheers
Stig

Unfortunately, Stig, I am not aware of any useful internet sites or any books, other than the two you mention, that cover the subject in any detail. I suppose that there is not a lot of interest in this area, other than in the colour schemes and markings?
