Comments: First I would like to thank all of you for your service,and for keeping
memory alive of so many brave souls that seem to be forgotten by
their leaders.my name is Scott Dickinson and AD3 Jack D Lively is
my uncle,my mother,Patricia Dickinson has been fighting for answers
for 20+ years,and I'm sure jack this is proud of her as I am.
I am saddened and ashamed that the government for which they
served so honorably ,have for some reason decided to disrespect
their service,their memory, and their families.

my mother as stated many times that she feels that our government
is waiting for her generation to pass and these cases to be
forgotten,but in honor of my uncle and of all the other men and
women that have served this country, we must not let this happen!

Thank you
Scott D.Dickinson

Comments: When U.N. intelligence reported enemy shipping at
Mokpo,Korea, near the south-western tip of the Korean
peninsula, in Aug.1950, the British destroyers,
Cockade, and Cossack, headed for the port of Mokpo.
The two British ships wound their way thirty miles up
a narrow channel, fighting ten-knot tital currents
much of the way. With the spotting assistance they
needed all the way, from a U.S. Navy Patrol Squadron 6
Neptune aircraft based in Japan. The ships found one
enemy steamer at the site. The British war-ships sank
the steamer, and bombarded surrounding docks, and
railroad sidings, before threading their way back
down the tortuous channel. A joint U.N. success story.

Comments: May father served with VP-1 during the Korean War. As a
result, I am interested in collecting oral histories
and recollections from as many of you as are willing -
so that we can preserve information from this period. I
am interested in the names of men you served with and
your memories of them, where you were stationed, the
experiences you had,the patrol flights and actions and
I would like to hear from you if you were in a ground
crew or training as well as flight crew. I asked my
father to make his own record of his time and
experiences from that period. We need to preserve the
record of the missions you all performed during this
critical time in our history. Thank you.

It is the same action that Jack Lively on your list was involved in. No bodies or survivors were located though the action was possibly in Russian waters.

Service or Relationship: NAVY VETERAN - KOREA

Comments: I was with VP6 during the 51-52 period and flew as an ECM operator. We lost three aircraft during that tour. My first related assignment was to assist in scraping one that had run off the end of the runway in southern Japan after losing a lower jug on an engine. Later, I had just flown with the crew that lost an engine during a snow storm off of Korea where when they lost their lower jug. The theory of the day was that the radioman chief had been hit by equipment which came lose. The skipper actually had opened his hatch and stuck his head out and probably looked back in and saw the first radioman needed help.

My understanding about the plane shot down on November 6th was mixed. I personaly had never flown over any part of Russia or China on any of my patrols, only water, water and more water, so I bought into the line that they were flying at least 25 miles off the coast like we were supposed to. If that was true, it would be difficult to expect to recover bodies during that time of the year.

In hind sight, I am consider myself lucky that I was not in the PB4Y2 squadron that relieved us. They lost 3 planes during the two weeks we overlapped when relieved which killed some our pilots who were flying checkouts.

Comments: Looking for friends from era, especially interested in hearing from BW Mitchell of Durant. Ok. who was an ADAN in flight crews in 1950, and 1951 deployments to Japan. I was with him in a crew in 1951. He was in crew 10 in 52 Kodiak deployment with Pilot Ltjg Fred Etherton, Nuber, Neufield, A. M. Silva (of San Jose, Ca.), Tennant, Herrick, G. R. Hutchinson. I am in contact with Herrick and Etherton. Am searching San Jose for Silva.

Comments: One of my goals is find out the names of a navy flight crew in VP6 that was shoot down over Vladvostok on November 6, 1951. I can't remember their names. I was in a crew on the flight preceeding theirs with the same mission. This crew is MIA. I feel ashamed that I can't remember the name of the young airman on that flight whose body I was to escort to his home had it been recovered. He was to do the same for me if he survived and I didn't. There is information and misinformation on this shoot down in books I have found but no crew list. Wife of one of the crew members was working as an attendant at the Pearl Harbor in the fifties when I bought gas there.

I would like to communicate with any family members and persons knowing more facts about this incident, especially names, etc. of the crew members. /s/Jack Masters, former AL1 in VP6

Comments: We had some trying times and some great times. I would not take gold for the memories. The thrill of flying. The friendships. The parties. The very active volleyball games, including the Marine aircrews in hanger at B.P. The places visited!

There are many names I will never forget. Some that I didn't recall over the years are slowly coming back, thanks to the activity on some of these web sites
Saunders, Freddy Musgrave, Joe Ramirez. Quinn, Pomeroy, fuller, more Many names still escape me

I need names of that crew and names/addresses of family members of the flight crew that was shot down at Vladavostok in 1951. and I need a way to contact family members.
I also need the name of the ALC and the pilot killed in the crash (run-away prop.) Xmas Eve (I think) off the coast of Korea. We were flying in a different quadarant an hear the SOS message. Radioman/electronicsman J. B. Manning was a survivor.
