Another proud Sailor that served with the Wooden Fleet has been called home. Rest assured he is once again taking his place at the Helm, with his Crew that has gone before him. He is facing the wind, bow high, Packards turning the Clouds to White Foam and keeping a sharp lookout, not for the enemy, but for the face of God..............

As Mr. Jones name was called off the Patrol roster, hopefully it went something like this. He stood on the pier waiting as his crew came ripping across the bay to bring THE SEA BAT pierside. he youthfully jumped on her deck once again, shook a few hands as the crew welcomed him home, took the wheel, and with her throttles in his hand, sped out to sea for his final patrol. Good Luck Skipper.

Rest in peace. I have records from my dad that says that the 133 and the 127 were at Kana Kopa . I was wondering if Paul was also with the 132.

Scott;
Yes PT132 was with PT127 and PT133 at Kana Kopa, Milne Bay, when they were originally with RON 7. 132 was transferred to RON 21 on 2/15/1945. 127 was transferred to RON 12 on 2/15/1945, and 133 was destroyed by an enemy shore battery on 7/15/1944.

I found this on line and thought I would post a link here. It is from a book on Alamo Scouts called Shadows in the Jungle. It would be interesting to know who the other two boats were.

Sunset and evening star,
And one clear call for me!
And may there be no moaning of the bar,
When I put out to sea,
But such a tide as moving seems asleep,
Too full for sound and foam,
When that which drew from out the boundless deep
Turns again home.

Twilight and evening bell,
And after that the dark!
And may there be no sadness of farewell,
When I embark;

For though from out our bourne of Time and Place
The flood may bear me far,
I hope to see my Pilot face to face
When I have crossed the bar.
