HistoryA BIT OF HISTORY: "...5 Jan 1942: On this date, the squadron was established at NAS Norfolk, Va., under the operational control of Patrol Wing 9. The men and material assigned to the squadron had been sent to NAS Banana River, Fla., for flight training in the PBM Mariner seaplane and would not have been present for any ceremony, even had one been planned. However, due to the shortage in Mariner aircraft, the squadron personnel were trans-ferred to NAS Norfolk where most of the first month of training was conducted in PBY-5A Catalinas. Cross-country flying and navigation skills were improved when the squadron was assigned the mission to ferry PBY aircraft from the West Coast back east.

5 April 1942: The squadron received orders to transfer to NAS Quonset Point, R.I., in preparation for overseas deployment.

12 May 1942: VP-93 deployed to NAF Argentia, Newfoundland. The squadron was ready for combat operations on 20 May, under the tactical control of Patrol Wing 7 and administrative control of Patrol Wing 9. The squadron split into two detachments, with one remaining at Argentia and the other in Greenland. Pocomoke (AV-9), anchored in Placentia Harbor, Argentia, Newfoundland, provided the supply and maintenance facilities critical to the squadron's upkeep in the frigid conditions of the North Atlantic. Convoy coverage was extremely difficult due to con-stant heavy fog and frequent failures of the primitive radar sets in use by the squadron at the time. Weather was the direct cause of death for Lieutenant (jg) Wilson B. Rippey and his crew, who were forced to set down on the surface after losing their bearings. Rescue aircraft could not locate Rippey and his crew before heavy seas sank their aircraft..." Naval Historical Center, Department Of The Navy, Washington, D. C [02MAY2001]
