He was stationed at CASU 1 and CASU 2 as an aviation machinist and engine instructor from 1943 to 1944. He was a CPO at date of discharge in September 1945 in Chicago. He would have been a PO1 at time of service in Hawaii. I believe he also served on the USS White Plains (CVE-66). He passed away in 1993. Ensign W. W.

Memorial Picture "...HULL, AMR2 Walter G. Jr...ARM2 Walter G. Hull, Jr. joined the Navy in March 1942 and became an aviation radioman. By chance, he was assigned to VS-47 where he joined his brother, ARM1 Warren E. Hull for 10 months of coastal patrol flying out of NAS Alameda, California and Crescent City, CA. When it came time to rotate out of VS-47 to a combat squadron, Walter requested and was transferred to VB-150, which was being formed in late 1943. Warren was also transferred to VB-150 and they remained together in VB-150 (and after December 1944, VPB-150) through work-ups, deployment to the Central Pacific, 55 combat missions against the Empire of Japan, and the squadron’s decommissioning in July 1945. During the deployment, Walter was part of Crew 12. On one mission, his plane was hit by anti-aircraft. Upon arriving home and after a month’s leave, training began anew. VPB-150 was reconstituted and shortly thereafter disbanded. My uncle, now certified as Combat Aircrewman, with the insignia to prove it, was transferred to VPB-198. He was being trained in the new PV-2 Harpoon for the invasion of Japan in the fall of 1945. Thankfully, the war ended in August. Walter was discharged in December 1945 at the age of 22. His involvement in the war ended in 1947 when he received official citations awarding him several Air Medals and and the Distinguished Flying Cross for his actions when his plane was hit by enemy fire. He went on to have a successful career, marriage and five children. He was humbly proud of his service in VPB-150 and the small part he played in winning the war. Walter died at the age of 68 in 1992..."

Memorial Picture "...HULL, AMR1 Warren E...I am currently researching information so that I can record for our family the experiences of my father, ARM1 Warren E. Hull during WWII. My father started out in VP-63, but was transferred to VS-47 in the latter part of 1942 after missing some training. This occurred because he had helped crew a flight of PBYs to Hawaii and it took so long to get back to NAS Alameda, California by ship that a training gap occurred. By chance his brother ARM2 Walter G. Hull, Jr., was also assigned to VS-47 and for the next 10 months they flew OS2-U coastal patrols out of NAS Alameda, California and Crescent City, CA. When it came time to rotate out of VS-47 to a combat squadron, my father requested and was transferred to VB-150, which was being formed in late 1943. His brother joined him and they remained together in VB-150 (and after December 1944, VPB-150) through work-ups, deployment to the Central Pacific, 55 combat missions against the Empire of Japan, and the squadron’s decommissioning in July 1945. VPB-150 flew in the PV-1 Ventura. VPB-150 was known as the ‘Devilfish P-Viators’ and had a devilfish or octopus as the squadron’s logo. The green devilfish was also painted around each aircraft’s dorsal twin .50 cal Martin turret, making that squadron’s logo easily recognizable and distinctive. The name ‘Ventura’ meant Lucky Star and out of the more than thirty U.S. Navy PV squadrons during the war, VPB-150, for a variety of reasons, including luck, was probably the luckiest star of all these squadrons with respect to training and combat losses. Over 240 PV-1 Venturas were lost in training accidents or combat. Most squadrons lost aircraft and aircrew in training accidents before ever getting to combat zones. The Ventura was a tough, fast, high performance aircraft, but it had high wing loading (later corrected in the PV-2 Harpoon) and could be difficult to fly, particularly when taking off with a full load. In addition, most patrols and strike flights required round trips of 900 miles or more over the vast Pacific. If something went wrong, there was little or no help. VPB-150’s only aircraft loss took place on Tinian in 1944, when several Japanese came out of the sugar cane fields and took over a parked, unmanned plane on the tarmac, which was eventually blown up by the Japanese when the Marines arrived on scene. The squadron lost one person in combat, navigator AOM2 Kenneth Christie, killed by anti-aircraft fire in a bombing run on Jaluit in the Marshalls, in July 1944. My father left many photographs of the squadron’s time on Tarawa and Tinian. Life was rudimentary—fly, rest, maintain aircraft, plan, fly, rest…. The squadron had first operated out of Tarawa for a short time and as soon as the Marianas were secured, they moved to North Field Tinian, living in tents and mud when it rained. In August, VB-150 relocated to West Field Tinian to make way for the Army’s rapidly arriving B-29s and their crews. The Seabees had just finished this airstrip and its relatively luxurious and dry Quonset huts, far better accommodations than they had lived in at North Field. My father’s plane came under ground fire during its inaugural landing on Tinian and later had it’s landing gear collapse during a landing. I am sure there were similar ‘minor’ issues in the squadron, but when VB-150 headed home in March 1945, it was with everyone who had left Alameda a year earlier, except for Petty Officer Christie. My father’s pilot during his VB-150 time was Lieutenant Robert Swan. Although unknown to his crew, LT Swan had been the navigator on the PBY in June 1942 that first spotted the Japanese fleet at the Battle of Midway.Upon arriving home and after a month’s leave, training began anew. VB-150 was reconstituted and shortly thereafter disbanded. My father, now a certified Combat Aircrewman, with the insignia to prove it, was transferred to VPB-198. He was being trained in the new PV-2 Harpoon for the invasion of Japan in the fall of 1945. Thankfully, the war ended in August. My father was mustered out at Camp Shoemaker (Dublin, CA) in October at age 24. His involvement in the war ended in 1947 when he received official citations awarding him several Air Medals. He went on to have a successful career, marriage and four children. He was quietly proud of having served in WWII and the highlight of that service was his time in VB-150. My father died this past August (2012) at the age of 91..."

I really wanted to be a worker on the P-3. I finally was allowed to follow the guys around the plane and help them. I learned to do some of the pre-flight. I have some pictures of the first P-3 and the P2s behind her. I remember the trip back from NS Sangley Point, Philippines. The condensed version of a mishap was when one of our planes went down in the ocean. All hands were rescued the next morning, but the seas were rough and most had bad sea-sickness. They were rescued by a cruise ship, and the story goes that only one girl about 10 yrs old onboard, and the rest were senior citizens.

HUNT, Charles S. "Chuck" dpms223@aol.com "...I served in VP-9 from 1977 to 1979, then crossed the hanger to VP-40. I stayed in the "Lagging Handa" (or, as we called it, the slow motorcycles) until 1984, when I lost my mind and put in for shore duty, whereupon I got sentenced to a training squadron in Beeville, Tx. I'm sure some of you out there know what I mean. I was enroute from NAS Adak, Alaska back to NAS Moffett Field, California when we heard the initial Mayday from PD4, having flown that particular airframe just a couple days previously, as I was a "second mech" at the time, and went on to FE school. Flew out of NAS Adak, Alaska, NAS Misawa, Japan, NAS Cubi Point, Philippines, Guam, NSF Diego Garcia (aaarrrgghhhh) and took part in the "great Omani British E-club recon" while broke down in Oman with a #3 reduction gearbox failure. Also out of NAS Keflavik, Iceland, NAF Lajes, Azores, Portugal, and Kinloss, Scotland. After a few incidents I decided a safer profession was in order (new kids and one on the way), so I am now a police officer with 14 years on the streets of San Antonio, TX. Jody Griswold, if you are out there, you still owe me for that night in Bodo, Norway. Any Shipmates that can still think, drop me a line and we'll see what comes up.

HUTCHISON, CDR Clarence H. Retired http://www.vc-35andvaaw-35.org/stories/coalHaulingPilot.html "...CDR Clarence H. Hutchison, USN (Ret.) - VC-35 VAN Team 12 "A" - USS Boxer - During WWII, I was a Signalman Second Class (SM2) undergoing Naval Aviation pilot training at Pensacola, Florida. Upon graduation in September 1942, I was designated Aviation Pilot Second Class (AP2) and received orders to the Aleutian Islands. Stopping in Dutch Harbor, I was directed to stow my seabag and Navy uniforms in the Lucky Bag and then issued long underwear and wool army clothing. From there, I proceeded to NAS Adak, Alaska and reported to the PATSU Unit. The Master-at-Arms issued me an army cot and sleeping bag and assigned me to a tent. My dreams of becoming a hot-shot pilot disappeared when he informed me that I would be assigned to the coal hauling detail. Life was primitive on NAS Adak, Alaska at this time, with personnel living in tents and using coal-burning stoves for warmth. My duties were to drop off sacks of coal at various tents each day. After about two weeks of this humiliating experience, I went to see the Officer-in-Charge of the PATSU Unit and asked him if the Navy trained me to fly airplanes so I could come out here and haul coal. He asked me my name and when I told him, he said they had been looking for me and wanted to know where I had been. I told him that I had the honor of being the only coal hauling pilot on the island and believed my talents could be best used elsewhere. He agreed and assigned me the job of correcting aeronautical charts and plotting moving submarine havens for the local patrol squadrons. In order to maintain flight proficiency, I started flying patrols with the tenant PBY squadrons searching for enemy Japanese forces attempting to re-supply their garrison on Kiska. In March of 1943, I was promoted to Aviation Pilot First Class (AP1) and assigned to VP-43 flying PBY-5A's. Pre-deployment training was conducted at Tongue Point, Oregon and NAS Whidbey Island, Washington prior to returning to the Aleutians. In October 1943, the squadron began operating from the island of Attu, conducting patrols and night bombing raids on the Japanese base at Paramushiro in the northern Kurile Islands. On January 1st 1944, I was promoted to Chief Aviation Pilot (CAP) and in March 1944 I was designated a Patrol Plane Commander (PPC) in PBY aircraft, a far cry from my coal hauling days..."
