Listing of claims by VF-2 The Rippers

Good evening
I wish to locate a listing of all the pilots that made claims with US Navy fighter Squadron VF-2 knows as the Rippers from 1943 to 1944 and had a roster of 28 pilots that claimed more that 5 kills, but would like to know about the other pilots that claim four to one claims.

thank you in advance.
Santiago

They are all included in Frank Olynyk's victory list no 2 (USN in WW 2).
Since it is a total of 262/41/2, it is far too much to write down.

I don't think the publication is in print any more.
I will happily scan the pages for you, but not without Frank's permission.

Cheers
Stig

Stig,
Go ahead and scan for Santiago.

When the work on the MAW series is done, getting my victory lists back in print, along with some new ones, will be a high priority.

Enjoy!

Frank.

Thank you guys
It hard to find Frank USN claim list and some are asking outrageous price for that volumen, one example for a not pristine copy was asking $400 USD (WHAT!!!!) Please Frank republish your listing they are needed. Also on another subject the NA in St Louis had the AAF Form 5 available. So they found some of the Mexican pilots before the lock down.

Cheers
Santiago
