    I am looking for a victory list for this squadron. I know they claimed 62 Japanese aircraft in 1944-45. From the information I have I believe they made at least 3-0-1 claims flying TBM not the 1 normally credited.

    TBM pilots LtCdr Percival M Jackson and Lts Peden and Yeaman all seem to have brought down Japanese aircraft. Jackson and Yeaman making claims for "Jake" floatplanes while Peden's gunner was credited with a Zeke or Oscar.

    regards Keith
