Sergeant pilots

In the Pacific theatre, were there many Sergeant Pilots flying against the Japanese? I know between Australia and New Zealand there were 13,000 men who became Sergeant Pilots.

Harry,

I know that pilots with the ranks of SGT, F/SGT, T/SGT and W/O flew against the Japanese in the following services:

* RAF
* RAAF
* RCAF
* RNZAF
* USMC

Although I've been unable to confirm, I would think there would be a handful that flew against the Japanese with the USAAF.

I'm pretty sure the NEIAF was the same.
