Records for French Confirmed Victory Claims?
Since DTB raised the issue, can you explain what kinds of records are
available that prove which French victory claims were, in fact, officially
confirmed? Many of us realize that the French confirmation procedure
was rigorous and exacting, but how can we determine if victory claims
were officially confirmed? Is it award citations? Communiques? I
hesitate to ask about an official list of pilots and E.A. totals, such as the
Italians compiled after the war, because my concern was whether
Adjudant Damenez was omitted in error from just such a list.
