I have 5 with PQ18 but think that is too high, and just 2 with 835 in 1944 (one shared with two pilots).

p.s. FAA claims with RAF be about 30 or so?
AFAIK, these are all shipborne kill claims. Shore based FAA Sea Hurricanes might have claimed others as well.

According to the RN NSH The Royal navy and the Arctic Convoys there were 6 accepted Sea Hurricane kill claims during PQ-18, but one may have been a CAM fighter.

There were certainly two post-war verified claims for Nairana/835sqn in 1944 but I believe that a 3rd aircraft was claimed to have been shot down, as it was burning and losing altitude when last seen.
