My dad flew the PB2Y-5H in the Pacific and I am now starting to research his career. He started out in PB4Ys flying anti submarine patrol along the US Atlantic coast. He was then transferred to the west coast and began flying PB2Ys and ended up in the PB2Y-5H. So where do I start to find out unit assignments etc? Also interested in how many of the 5Hs were produced and when they went into operation as well as the unit numbers. I do know that he flew his wounded Marine first cousin and next door neighbor off of Saipan, probably allowing him to survive the war.
Thanks so much and glad to be here!
