Does anybody have the the dates for air-to-air claims by the following:

VF-9: John Orth (6 victories). I have the AAR for 4 May 1945 with three Betty's destroyed. Also, he bagged two aircraft on 29 April but I don't what type of aircraft. Also, when was his other kill?

VF-17: Robert J. Humphrey (5.33). I can't find any information on him except he shot down a Tabby on 18 March 45 and was killed in Korea in 1952.

Hi Alan,

Robert Humphrey's kills were:

Topsy on 18 Mar 45
Myrt (shared with two others) on 23 Mar 45
Emily on 27 Mar 45
Jill on 27 Mar 45 (same CAP flight as above)
Betty on 16 Apr 45 (in an F6F-5N at night, 0115 on the 17th)
Paul on 24 May 45

If you send me your email address, I can send you the AARs if you'd like.

HTH,

Mac
