Description: In July 1942 John Thomas Blackburn was ordered to organize VGF-29 as the Commanding
Officer. On January 1, 1943 Lt.Cdr John Thomas Blackburn became Commander of the newly
formed VF-17 equipped with F4U-1 Corsairs in April 1943. Blackburn’s use of the fearsome
“Jolly Roger” skull and crossbones was to emphasize the daring attitude of his pilots. On
November 8, 1943 six VF-17 Corsairs engaged fifteen Val Dive Bombers and twenty four Zeros
downing three Zeros and damaging four others with no VF-17 losses. Blackburn’s final war total
was eleven kills.
