Information drawn from the Navy list  April 1945 through April 1946 (final edition before squadron disbanded)

 

* Pilot appears in Navy List as being appointed to both 1839 and 1844 squadrons; both operated together as the 5th Naval Fighter Wing, and later 11th Carrier Air Group, Pilots regularly flew machines from each squadron.

 † 1840 squadron was disbanded on April 26th 1945 and many of its personnel and aircraft were transferred to 5 Naval Fighter Wing- however the Navy List continued to report these officers as being on 1840 in both the July and October 1945 editions.
