Aloha Leonardo,
The initial OS2U-1 Kingfisher assignments to the Battleship fleet was recorded by BuNo and side number....which you have quoted a portion. This is sourced at the LTV archive, Grand Prairie, Texas.

However, in the fall of 1941, the entire Battleship fleet were updated to the OS2U-3...which were not so nicely documented.

Hope this helps,
David Aiken
