Re: FAA Corsair Squadrons. claims

Good stuff.

I have a couple of different interpretations.

25.07.1944 Tiddles Brown of 1830 shared his victory with Bud Sutton of 1833. Jerry Morgan of 1838 and Matt Barbour of 1830 each damaged "Zekes" (actually Ki43) Maybe confirmed later?

Re: FAA Corsair Squadrons. claims

Hansons victory of 24.01.1945 was shared with his flight, as were two other jap fighters damamged.

Winnie Churchill and Jimmy James of 1833 damaged a Betty bomber on the ground 24.01.1945
