Lt GC Duncan OS2U kill?

According to "Fabled Fifteen" by Thomas Cleaver, George Duncan was one of only two pilots to claim an aerial victory flying the Kingfisher seaplane (an A6M-2 Rufe during the invasion of Attu in August 1943). Cleaver writes that the second was claimed over Iwo Jima in 1944. I can only find one instance, an A6M5 destroyed by Lt DW Gandy over Iwo Jima on 16 February 1945.

I should state that Duncan flew a Kingfisher from the USS Louisville during the invasion of Attu, but this was in May 1943.

Did Duncan (or his observer) claim a victory over Attu in 1943?
