Another question on 118th TRS

Hello,

Since 118th TRS is being discussed below and we have been pointed towards the excellent www.118trs.com site, I have another question on this squadron.

On 7 July 1944, 1st Lt. Oran Watts is credited with 2 Oscars over Anking between 08:30-12:30 (several more claims were made over Anking at this time).
However, this mission isn't included in the site above and I can't find any other missions to this region on this date (most missions were in the Tungting Lake area or Ichang).

Is there anyone with more info on this?

Best wishes/Håkan

The mission report covering Watts' claims is on microfilm reel A0756, frames 1888-90, from USAFHRA.

Enjoy!

Frank.

Thanks Frank!

The limited info I did have came (of course) from your lists, which are invaluable!

Best wishes/Håkan
