    Looking for HTL 4 VMO 6

    You could check with Paul Lucey. He might remeber both events. He lives in San Francisco.

      HTL-4 128625 was recieved by MWSS-1, location given as "Japan" on the 3rd of September 1951 after being with VMO-6. I presume this was some kind of repair organisation? It was re-issued to VMO-6 on the 25th of September 1951, so I guess the damage couldn't have been too severe. It was written off on the 14th March 1952 with VMO-6.
