I think Guy Bordelon was the big winner -- he had 5 claims of night intruder kills in an F4U-5NL (FEAF scoffed at them as they could find no evidence of their crashing, but apparently there was some disagreement between the Navy and Air Force which the Navy one on this one.)
Thanks for the info, I've read his name before, but I didn't recall that it was about this. There was an ongoing war within the Conflict between the two services with the Marines siding with the Navy.
Regarding units, I've read that VMF(N) -513 claimed the record for most aircraft shot down.
