Re: Ensign Duncan transfers from USS West Virginia Sep.1941

Hell's teeth!!!!

Ok now you won't be the only awake half way through the night

I have three days off work. I will try and contribute the odd detail. I'm sure others will also join in.

Many thanks, Rich.

Thanks for taking the time to post this list, Rich and also for sharing your research with us.


I couldn't agree with you more, Keith. Rich and others, including yourself, are a great asset for WWII Naval Aviation research. Compared to people researching the Luftwaffe and AAF, USN & USMC researchers seem to be a very small minority.

Re: Ensign Duncan transfers from USS West Virginia Sep.1941

Hi Mac. I don't think there's a lack of interest but most of us don't have the expertise to contribute on this subject. But Navy and AAF operated closely especially in the Pacific.
Case in point. This is the 73rd Bomb Wing "HQ" on Saipan from Aug. 1944 and named for Cdr. R H Isely ( his name often spelt wrong both then and now) killed in a TBM on a pre-invasion mission to Aslito airfield as it was then on 13 June; VT-16 "Lexington".
There is a Memorial plaque to him at Saipan International Airport.


Regards
Nick
