4th March 1944: 5th AF/RAAF claims

I'm trying to sort out the claims/credits on this date. This is what I have thus far:

35th FG

Maj William F McDonough: Ki-61 destroyed; 1130 Gusap

Capt Frederick C Harries: e/a destroyed; time/location ?

40th FS

1stLt William H Strand: Ki-43 damaged; Wewak area

41st FS

2ndLt Paul L Lorick: e/a destroyed; time/location ?

1stLt Edward S Park: e/a destroyed; ditto

75 Sqn RAAF

S/L Colin W Lindeman & F/Sgt Alfred E Stuart: Ki-43 damaged (upgraded to destroyed ?); 1145 south of But

Eric Hammel (Air War Pacific Chronology) indicates two Japanese fighters were claimed destroyed in the Wewak area at 1115, and another two over the Bogadjim road at 1220, plus McDonough's claim. However, USAF Historical Study No 85 lists four credits for this date in SWPA.

Any constructive input welcome.
